Bad Weather Forecast Prompts City to Encourage Observation of Trick or Treat on Tuesday October 30, 2018

Due to the forecast of a 100% chance of rain and thunderstorms on October 31, 2018. The City of Fulton is recommending that organizations and residents observe “Trick or Treat” and other outdoor activities on October 30, 2018. The City feels that this is the best option for a successful turnout and the safety and enjoyment of all.

Events below have already been rescheduled:

First Baptist Church

“Due to heavy rains forecast for Wednesday Oct. 31, the residents of Third Street have decided to do “trick or treating” on Tuesday night, Oct. 30.
Because of the bad weather on Wednesday and the incredibly large number of families and children who come to Third Street for “trick or treating”, the recreation committee has decided to move the FBC Fall Festival to Tues. evening, Oct. 30 from 6-8pm. All activities will be inside the FBC Family Life Center”

Third Street Community (Reprinted from the Current News)

The neighborhood of Fulton’s Third Street residents will continue their annual Halloween trick-or-treating event, however because of a threat of bad weather, Third Street resident Darcy Linn said after consulting with several Third Street neighborhood residents, it was decided they would change their event to Tuesday night from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The street will be blocked during those hours for those who plan to trick-or -treat on Third Street.
No official change in the observance of Halloween has been made in the City of Fulton in its entirety.


Sidewalk Trip Hazard Removal Will begin Monday October 29th

We will have independent contractor crews working on the trip hazards on the sidewalks along Third, Second, Pearl & North College. This was originally going to happen this week but has been delayed by the contractor. They are going to begin on Third Street Monday October 29 and will be completed with all repairs by Tuesday October 30. Just in time for the trick or treating.
