Kids' Halloween Prize Bag Pick-Up - PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
The Carrboro Recreation, Parks, & Cultural Resources Department would like to invite children 10 and Under to dress in their favorite costume and stop by Carrboro Town Commons on Friday, October 30th anytime between 4:30pm-7:00pm to pick up a small prize bag (while supplies last). 

Prize bags will be handed out by staff in the Town Hall Parking Lot off of Bim Street. 

All cars should access Bim Street via Fidelity Street from the North (near Fire Station #1) and follow the directional signs.
