|Prairie Street Prowl set for Friday|
A portion of Prairie Street in Winnsboro's historic downtown will be closed to traffic Friday afternoon, Oct. 31, for the annual Prairie Street Prowl for youngsters ages 12 and under.
The event, sponsored by Winnsboro Main Street, Inc., is a family-friendly alternative to traditional Halloween activities. The fun will begin at 3:30 p.m. and will end at 6 p.m.
According to Police Chief Lester Thomas, Prairie Street will be closed from the area near Franklin State Bank to the old Post Office building shortly after 2 p.m. to prepare for the festivities. Space for parking can be found in the parking lots located across from Franklin State Bank and behind the Princess Theatre as well as along side streets.
Children are encouraged to come in costume and should be accompanied by parents or guardians.
A costume contest, visit from Gary Miers and critters from Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo, drawing for a bicycle, trunk or treat, and of course, candy, will be part of the featured entertainment.
No candy will be distributed downtown until 3:30 p.m. Parents are asked to visit the registration table in front of the Princess Room to pick up packets for the adults and to register children's names for the drawing.
Progressive Bank will host the costume contest with first, second and third place prizes awarded in four different age categories. The bank plans to set up a registration booth in front of Celebrations Bakery for children who wish to participate. Parents must accompany children who enter that event.
Family Life Home Health and local auto dealers, White Ford Lincoln-Mercury, Waller-Singer Chevrolet, Interstate Buick-Pontiac-GMC and Dennis Crain Dodge-Chrysler will show their creative flair in the "trunk or treat" show in which the trunks of vehicles will be decorated in a fun fashion.
Northeast Louisiana Ambulance will have a unit on the scene as well.
Other businesses offering candy treats downtown will include Franklin State Bank, Princess Theatre, Winnsboro Physical Therapy, Sweet Peas, D&D Shoe Repair, Franklin Parish Library, Every Occasion, Mixed Blessings, Kathy Morris Realty, Winnsboro Office Supply, New Look, D&D Community Connection, Gifts and Glamour, The Franklin Sun, Daffodils, Something Special, Wellspring, J&M Cleaners, Winnsboro State Bank, Winnsboro Sports, K&S Drugs, Citizens Progressive Bank and the Franklin Parish Sheriff's Office.
