Below please find a look at some community-based events for Thursday night; all are free. We’re watching the weather forecast (tricky to say the least) and will have updates on any changes.
Rome and Floyd County’s Public Safety and Community Partners in the Third Annual ‘Treats Not Streets’ because of weather concerns.
Adairsville: Halloween on the Square, 4-6 p.m. now on Friday, free. From Adairsville Police: “Because of inclement weather, the Halloween on the Square event is being moved to Friday, Nov. 1, from 4 until 6 p.m. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we hope to see you all there. Because of the weather forecast calling for thunderstorms on Thursday, the police department will not be having the Haunted House downtown on the square. There was a great turnout this past Friday and Saturday night. We would like to give a huge shoutout to the Adairsville High School Drama Club for all of their help and partnership for our Haunted House. It would not have been possible without those students and leaders.”
