It’s time to Trick-or-Treat at the Times

PRINCETON — There are lots of treats in store for Princeton’s princesses, pirates, witches and ghosts who stop by the Princeton Times before heading for their neighborhoods on Halloween.

Your Hometown Newspaper will sponsor its fourth annual Trick-or-Treat at the Times, 1:30 p.m.—5:30 p.m., on Wednesday, Oct. 31. The afternoon’s events and offerings will include free treats, a harvest photo shoot by award-winning photographer John Nelson and free child identification finger-printing by a representative of the West Virginia State Police.

In addition, trick-or-treaters 15 and under will all be eligible to enter a free costume contest worth a $100 savings bond for the grand prize winner and $50 savings bonds for the first-place winner in each of three age categories: 0-4 years old; 5-9 years old and 10-15 years old.

Winners of the costume contest will be tabulated after the event and announced in the Friday, Nov. 2, edition of the Princeton Times. Photos of all participants who have their pictures taken will appear in a special section to print in the Friday, Nov. 10, edition.

While all the activities are free, Princeton Times Editor and General Manager Tammie Toler said parents will also be able to purchase photo prints and CDs of their trick-or-treaters. The first 5x7 print of each child will be $5, and each additional print per child will be available at a discounted rate of $2 per photo.

Toler said the event offers local youngsters either an alternative or addition to traditional trick-or-treating and provides a chance for the hometown newspaper to connect with the community it serves.

“It’s so much fun to see all the trick-or-treaters in their costumes and capture those memories on film for their families. We invite everyone to stop by the Times office for some treats,” Toler said.

The Princeton Times office is located at 109 Thorn St., Princeton. Street-side parking is available at the front, along with spots at the side of the building and in a lot designated for the former Bailey Lumber building.
