Trick-or-treating along the streets of Barnesville’s Thomaston Street corridor is a time-honored tradition and is the climax of a series of events leading up to the promenade of ghosts and goblins.
Barnesville will celebrate Halloween on Tuesday, Oct. 31 and Thomaston Street and other thoroughfares will be blocked off beginning at 5 p.m.
Lamar Arts kicks things off this week with the Painted Pumpkin Promenade Oct. 19-21 at the Depot Gallery. Participants can pick a pumpkin, paint it and either take it home or leave it on display at the gallery. The cost is $12 per pumpkin and includes the necessary art supplies.
