PARMA, OH -- City of Parma trick-or-treat will be officially observed on Halloween night, Tuesday, Oct. 31, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

While Parma youngsters are out enjoying this seasonal treat, Mayor Tim DeGeeter urges motorists to use extra caution, especially on neighborhood streets where children could dart out unexpectedly. Parma Police will be utilizing extra auxiliary police support during that time, with additional police cruisers out in our neighborhoods.

“We appreciate the extra support of the Parma Police,” Mayor DeGeeter said. “Obviously, the most important thing is for our kids and families to enjoy a safe Halloween experience.”

Another Halloween tradition in Parma is the Old World Treat & Greet event, during which kids and families visit participating Polish Village merchants to trick-or-treat. The event, in its seventh year, is scheduled for Oct. 28 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. along Ridge Road in Polish Village. Those who want to make the most of Treat & Greet should get passports stamped at every stop. Passports can be obtained at 5755 Ridge Road, which is Treat & Greet headquarters, or at any participating merchant. At the end of the day, passports returned to headquarters will be entered for drawings and prizes.

“This event has grown every year and this year, we are looking for the biggest and best Treat & Greet yet,” said Ward Two Councilwoman Debbie Lime. “It’s great fun for the kids and also gets good exposure for our businesses in Polish Village.”

Mayor DeGeeter also added that additional police cruisers will be provided for the area during Treat & Greet, and he encourages Parma families to attend one of the best free, fun family events that our city hosts.
