PARMA, OH -- City of Parma trick-or-treat will be officially observed on Halloween night, Saturday, 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 using extra auxiliary support during that time, with more cruisers out in 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 Polish Village Treat & Greet event, during which kids and families visit participating merchants to trick-or-treat. The event, in its fifth year, is scheduled for Oct. 24 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. along Ridge Road in Polish Village. Those who want to make the most of Treat & Greet should first stop at 5790 Ridge Road, which is Treat & Greet headquarters, to pick up a map and a passport with participating businesses listed on it and a space for the merchant to stamp when it has been visited. At the end of the day, passports returned to headquarters will be entered for drawings and prizes. Last year, 40 businesses participated.

“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.”
