There will also be some older kids there helping out. The Nevada Union High School athletic department is doing their annual walk-a-thon.

The Center for the Arts will be giving away books, and even the Gold Miners Inn, which is a little away from the central downtown area, will also be handing out treats. Main and Mill Streets will both be closed off to auto traffic to make the event safer. ‘Safe Trick or Treat’ is from 10am to 1pm.
