To the delight of the kids and young at heart, Chickasha Chamber of Commerce announced earlier this month that the annual Neewollah celebration will be happening this year. It will be held on Saturday, October 31 from 5-7pm on Chickasha Avenue.
Back in September, the Chamber asked citizens to take a short survey to help decide if the planning of the event should move forward. According to their Facebook post, 489 individuals respond to the survey and an overwhelming majority of 80.1% wanted the Chickasha Chamber to move forward with Neewollah.
A number of safety precautions will be put in place to host a safe trick or treating alternative for our community. The precautions will include one way sidewalks, no contact grab & go candy tables and a virtual costume contest. (Additional information on the virtual costume contest will be announced the week of October 26). Additional precautions may be added for the safety of the community.
Business owners & community organizations who want to set up a candy table on Chickasha Avenue are asked to contact Hayden at email@example.com or call 405-224-0787.
Unfortunately, there will be some kids that won’t be able to participate in community activities this Halloween due to exposure, quarantine or other health reasons. For those kids and others who don’t feel comfortable attending public events due to the pandemic, we would suggest there are still ways to celebrate and have a fun and memorable holiday at home. Decorate and carve pumpkins; Make fun and tasty Halloween treats; Set up a candy hide-and-seek; Go wild with the Halloween decorations; Find or plan a drive-through event; Have fun with a Halloween piñata. But, most importantly, don’t forget to dress up!
