Halloween Candy Walk

 

November 7, 2020

With the cancellation of the usual Halloween events, Tehachapi business owners came through for trick or treaters young and old on Halloween evening.

The brainchild of Michele Borquez, owner of Go2Girlz, a Halloween Candy Walk modeled after the Main Street Wine Walks and Ugly Sweater Walks, was conceived and several other businesses on Tehachapi Boulevard and adjoining streets jumped on board. At last count, over 20 small businesses elected to stay open from 5 to 8 p.m. Halloween evening to offer candy and treats to young ones.

Maps highlighting the participating businesses were given out, Halloween photos taken and over 400 people, adults and children, enjoyed the festivities. Jim Henderson of the Tehachapi Christian Store mentioned how delighted he was that many in the business community came together for the children and he believes that they will especially remember this special event offered during such a tough and uncertain year.
