Big Creek Elementary School students marched from their school to City Hall this week to make their case to Mayor Gary W. Starr for extending “Trick or Treat” hours.
The students marched peacefully in lines, shoulder-to-shoulder, chanting, “We want candy, please!” Afterwards, they presented their case to the mayor.
As a result, Trick or Treat is now officially extended an extra half-hour. It will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. this Halloween (Saturday, October 31).
“The first grade class of Big Creek Elementary had their first shake at democracy and how it works in America,” said Mayor Starr. “The students marched to City Hall to try and extend the time of Trick or Treat – and won a very sweet victory for all kids here in Middleburg Heights.”
