Since the '80's, the Quincy Chamber of Commerce has hosted the annual Safe Trick-or-Treat event in Quincy, California. The intent was to provide a safe environment for kids to trick-or-treat without walking through dark neighborhoods at night. Held every year on Halloween, the event runs from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Merchants all over downtown and even in East Quincy participate by handing out candy to the kids. In 2017 we had multiple organizations join us with tables or booths on the courthouse lawn. Another part of our Safe Trick-or-Treat is gathering candy donations. In 2017 we put candy collection barrels in Sav Mor, Safeway and Plumas Bank to receive candy donations from the public. The candy was in turn provided to participating Chamber businesses for them to hand out to the kiddos. Events like this require a lot of coordination with various groups and organizations, so special thanks go out to the Plumas County Board of Supervisors, Plumas County Department of Public Works, the California Highway Patrol, the Plumas County Sheriff's Department and the Quincy High School S Club.
