SIMPSONVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Trick-or-treaters are already taking over parts of the Upstate. Hundreds of people went to Simpsonville’s Halloween at Heritage Park Saturday.
“The weather has been great and all of the activities have been great for the kids and they have enjoyed it,” Brittany Brockman, an upcoming Chamber chairperson said. “So, I’m sure they will be back next year!’
“It is really nice and a safe area, with everything going on, so so far we have had a great time,” Tausha Blake said.
For some of the parents, going to these kinds of events is a safer alternative to the traditional tricks and treats. Some of them plan on going to both the Upstate events and trick or treating Monday. This year a particular viral scare is in the back of some parent’s minds.
“[It’s] a whole lot safer! We will see no clowns and that is awesome,” grandparent Stephany Sexton said.
“With all the recent episodes with the clowns, I will definitely be careful about trick or treating,” Equator Kennedy added.
But law enforcement says there are some things you should be more concerned about, before you go door to door Halloween night.
