Riverview's Trick or Treat Street provides kids fun, safety

For the 27th year, the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce will merge business development with Halloween fun as it hosts Trick or Treat Street on Saturday at Riverview High School, 11311 Boyette Road.

The family-friendly party features candy, food and prizes from 4 to 8 p.m. in a safe environment for children to trick or treat. Parking is $5, and some activities require donations. This annual event, put on with the help of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office and Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation, provides an opportunity for an estimated 3,000 children of all ages to have fun and for families to meet local businesses, churches and organizations.

More than 100 businesses decorate booths, dress up in costume and distribute candy and small toys to children. Local residents can enjoy bounce houses, eat food and win prizes.

Some of the more popular traditions include the costume contests and the Scare Zone, which promises a Walking Dead theme this year. The children's costume contests are broken down by age and cost $5 to register. Kids ages 3 and under will compete at 5 p.m., followed by ages 4 to 7 at 5:30 p.m., ages 8 to 11 at 6:30 p.m. and ages 12 to 15 at 7 p.m.

And for those who consider their dogs to be children, dress them up as well. A $10 donation to benefit Critter Adoption & Rescue Effort Inc. earns your dog, all sizes and breeds, a chance to parade in the spotlight at 6 p.m.

For more information visit RiverviewChamber.com or stop by the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce office located at 10012 Water Works Lane in Riverview between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Call (813) 234-5944 or email [email protected] chamber.com.
