Frostrpoof Celebrates Halloween Early with City Wide Trick or Treat and Street Dance

by James Coulter

Halloween may have been on Tuesday this year, but the City of Frostproof celebrated the holiday early with its citywide trick or treat and Halloween street dance on Saturday.

Frostproof hosted trick or treating early on Saturday evening. Children and their families were able to dress up in costume and travel door to door to collect their candy. Several local churches even hosted trunk or treat events.

The big festivities arrived later that night with the annual street dance. Hundreds, if not thousands, of visitors congregated along East Wall Street outside the Ramon Theater in Downtown Frostproof for a night of live music, food trucks, and other entertainment.

Frostproof High School students raised money for Project Graduation with several fun activities, including a dunk tank, rock climbing wall, bounce houses, and even a haunted trail. They also served food like popcorn, peanuts, cotton candy, and soft drinks.

“It is going very well,” said Jennifer Thompson, one of the parents volunteering for Project Graduation. “It is very busy. It has a lot of people coming. They are having a great time…It is going great, amazing, lots of people here and we are doing great. They are all meeting our expectations. I am loving seeing all the people in all the costumes.”

The Annual Street Dance is held twice a year for Halloween and Valentine’s Day. The popular event is hosted by the City of Frostproof and the Chamber of Commerce.

Angel Ball, Executive Chamber Director, loves how the event has grown over the years, drawing hundreds upon thousands of guests to the city and downtown area. The city tradition has only grown in popularity, and she hopes it continues to grow into the future for years to come.

“We get thousands of people every year, especially on Halloween,” she said. “We are just very grateful that the City of Frostproof put this on and we are so grateful for them.”
