About 4,500 people got to take home some tasty treats

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – People around the Valley were getting creative with Trick or Treating this year.

Some people in the Valley were making sure everyone could be included in the fun.

The Covelli Centre was packed Saturday evening, holding a Trick or Treating event that ran from 4 to 7 p.m.

It was held because Youngstown didn’t have a traditional trick or treat this year.

There were 32 vendors passing out candy, and cars started lining up at around 1:45 p.m.

“Expect for your kids to go home with a lot of candy!” said one of the event’s organizers, Victoria Allen before the event started.

About 4,500 people got to take home some tasty treats.

Organizers said they had a few hiccups, but they’ve pressed on.

“This is our first time. This is our first pandemic. We want it to be our last pandemic, of course, but it’s great to see people come out. We’re more than happy to service the needs of the people,” Allen said.

The city of Youngstown’s Parks and Recreation and Health departments and the ICU Block Watch organized the event.

Kids were also out in Boardman getting free candy with a traditional trick or treat, dressed up as superheroes, skeletons and more.
