MOUNT HOLLY, Vt. – On Oct. 25, 2019, the Mount Holly Parent Teacher Association held its annual Belmont Trick-or-Treat event on the Village Baptist Church Green. The event is an annual community-building event put on by the association.
This year, over 150 people attended the event, doubling last year’s crowds. Ten local homes in the village of Belmont opened their doors to trick-or-treaters. The Mount Holly Community Museum and the Odd Fellows Hall along with the Belmont Store also handed out candy to costumed children. Young children and parents could be seen gathering in the green chatting and comparing candy while waiting for a hayride from Plew Farms. Andrea Auld, secretary of the PTSA, along with her mother Linda Miller, co-president of the Mount Holly Community Association, decorated the gazebo with frightfully fun extras.
This is a great community event that provides a safe and fun avenue for families and children to explore the village of Belmont and gather plenty of treats. The event offered three prizes for costumes. The winners of the costume contest included Parker Chase for the best overall costume as a Lego man, the Blanchards for the best family dressed as Hungry, Hungry Hippos, and Piper Daley won the scariest costume.
The event was a huge success, and the Parent Teacher Association looks forward to growing the event every year.
