Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

Did COVID Cause New Halloween Tradition?

COVID-19 took a backseat to Halloween as the first ever "Kimball Trick or Trunk" was a huge success, according to organizers Sarah Stull, Amira Moore and Dawn Hickman.

With 27 individuals or groups handing out treats and goodies, hundreds of kids and parents attended the event. The outdoor event took place at the high school parking lot.

Some groups had elaborate decorations, while others just passed out candy from a simple setting.

Sarah Stull said, "We had a huge turnout. The Dairy Queen made 310 treat bags and had to go get more candy."

Amira Moore explained that "Everyone that participated wants to do it again next year," while Dawn Hickman agreed with making it an "annual event."

Kimball Sheriff Harry Gilway reported that "We gave out 600 glow sticks to trick or treaters! We ran out. Last year we gave out just shy of 400."

It was a great way to scare the daylights out of COVID-19.
