Main Street Waterloo executive director, Jessica Rucker said, “The Downtown Trick-or-Treat Committee worked hard to come up with fun, and creative ideas to ensure the community has ways to celebrate the holiday and support downtown businesses. We have found ways to celebrate Halloween differently than usual and not have to cancel it all together”
