City of Valdosta Trick or Treat Times!

For Immediate Release

October 25, 2012


Release #10-12-07


City Sets Hours for Trick-or-Treating

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Valdosta youth are a part of an estimated 41 million children across the United States who potentially could be out trick-or-treating this Halloween. 

The Valdosta Police Department has announced that the city’s annual trick-or-treating activity will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012, from 6 to 9 p.m.  Extra police patrol will be scheduled during this time to ensure the evening is both safe and enjoyable for our citizens. 

The city offers the following practical tips for citizens and their family members:


  • Children should walk in pairs.
  • Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe.
  • Adults should accompany children under 12.
  • Children should wear flame-resistant costumes, and fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see them.
  • Wear well-fitting masks, costumes and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips and falls.
  • Adults should pin a slip of paper on their children with the child’s name, address and phone number inside a pocket in case he or she gets separated from the group. 
  • In addition to selecting a safe route with good lighting, children should also be equipped with flashlights with fresh batteries or glow sticks to increase visibility.
  • Children should look both ways before crossing the street, and use established crosswalks wherever possible.           
  • Adults should inspect treats before children are allowed to eat them. Throw out unwrapped or unpackaged candy.


Motorists are urged to drive with caution and to be on the lookout for these young trick-or-treaters.  For more information, contact Valdosta Police Department Commander Bernard Robinson at (229) 293-3104.

Movies in the Park

Fall has finally arrived in South Georgia and with it comes football, cooler weather...and Movies in the Park! Southeastern FCU is excited to present this FREE event to the Valdosta community. Set in beautiful Drexel Park, our fall series features two classic family movies that people of all ages will enjoy. Bring your picnic blanket or folding chair and snag the perfect spot in front of our 30-foot screen. Movies begin at 7:00 pm and the first twenty families to arrive will receive a free gift.

Our series kicks off with the first movie on Saturday, October 27th and the second movie on November 10th. If either event is cancelled due to inclement weather, the movie will be shown on Saturday, November 17th. And to ensure that this event is enjoyable for even the youngest of movie-goers, snacks are welcome but alcoholic beverages will not be permitted.

For movie titles and additional details, please contact the Southeastern Movie Hotline at 229-244-2732. Or, like us on Facebook for the most up-to-date information.
