Trick or Treat for an Anthem Sweet

Tuesday 10.1.2013 @ 4:53pm | ImagesAZ | Community

Anthem’s littlest ghosts and goblins (along with their parents) are invited to trick-or-treat, door-to-door at Anthem’s commercial properties from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, October 25. Participating businesses throughout Anthem will display an ACC-issued Trick or Treat for an Anthem Sweet window decal as a sign that they have candy and spooky surprises for all visiting families.


This event is not only beneficial for little trick-or-treaters who want to collect candy in a safe, inviting environment, it is also a wonderful opportunity for businesses to invite in residents who may not otherwise come through their doors. Repeat business participant Justin Simons of State Farm, who is also chair of the ACC Economic Development and Marketing Committee, says, “This event gives our businesses the opportunity to enhance their exposure and strengthen their potential customer base.”


Simons is looking forward to this year’s event as he does every year. “It is always great to participate in a community event, especially around the holidays. Each year it seems like we get 500-600 kids dressed up and parading through our shopping center. It is an exciting time handing out treats to the swarm of kids and seeing many of their parents who are also clients. It makes me proud to be part of something that is fun, unique, and most importantly, safe.”


Trick-or-treaters and their parents are encouraged to pull out all the stops when it comes to costumes. Many business owners like Simons (also known as the Red Power Ranger) will do so as well!


Interested business owners may register at online or by phone. A complete list of participating businesses will be posted online prior to the event.
