Burleson will be celebrating Halloween on Saturday October 26 with the sixth annual Old Town Boo Bash. Children ages from birth to 12 years are invited to trick or treat on Ellison Street (from Main St. – Johnson Ave) from 6-8 p.m. Various local organizations will have booths set up and even vehicles for trunk or treat fun.
The first 1500 children will receive their own free pumpkin to embellish with magic marker and can be ‘picked’ from the pumpkin patch located near Parlor Car #411 which is parked beside the Burleson Visitors Center 124 W Ellison St.
The City stage will be set up at the City Hall parking lot (141 W. Ellison St.) and will house the entertainment. Recreation Center and Performers Unlimited will be on stage at 6 p.m. Frances Lea Dance Academy will star at 6:45. Mayor Ken Shetter will read a creepy tale and the stage presentations will be completed by a costume parade across the stage.
Besides trick or treating and the stage entertainment there will be games, bounce houses and of course candy.
The Citizens on Patrol branch of the Burleson Police Department will be keeping watch over the festivities and directing traffic. The Burleson Fire Department will have two trucks on hand if needed.
If a child is lost the City stage will help reconnect them with their parents.
Street closures for the event will be those intersecting with Ellison and will be in affect from 4-9 p.m. Streets affected will include Ellison from Main St. to Johnson Ave., Wilson, Warren and Bramson at Ellison. Johnson will be blocked off between Magnolia and N W Ellison.
Have a Boo Festatic time.
