Tech-or-Treat delights at the Gateway
By WVUA Digital Reporter Anneliese Taggart
The city of Tuscaloosa hosted its annual Tech-or-Treat Halloween event Tuesday evening. More than 600 children of all ages visited the Gateway in Alberta in a quest to gather candy and meet local vendors and organizations of all kinds.
More than 30 different local vendors and organizations set up tables for anyone to stop by and trick or treat – and after the cancellation of last year’s event, families could not be more excited to get back into the Halloween spirit.
“The hype here, we’ve felt it,” said City Special Events Manager Blake Waldrop. “We’ve had a lot of calls and a lot of people really excited to come back out, especially here in Alberta. It’s been really good for the community to get people out in public and around each other and get to see smiling faces all around.”
The event lasted two hours and the stations ranged from Tuscaloosa Police and Tuscaloosa Fire Rescue to Big Brothers Big Sisters of West Alabama, AT&T and Dominos.
