OHIO VALLEY — While Halloween does not officially arrive until Monday, towns around the area have been celebrating over the past few days with trick or treat, haunted houses and various other activities.

The Meigs County Council on Aging decorated the old school in Middleport, passing out treats and hosting post-trick or treat events, while those in Pomeroy came out for the the fourth annual Treat Street. Thursday also included trick or treat festivities in Reedsville, Chester and Tuppers Plains, while Racine and Syracuse celebrated on Friday evening.
