“We are thankful for the support the event has received from local businesses and the City as a whole,” says Bethany Bland, President/CEO. “The Rock Falls Chamber exists to help both our local businesses and our community grow, connect, and serve. Uptown Trick or Treat meets those goals by connecting our businesses and non-profits directly to the community in a positive way. It is exciting to see our Uptown area packed full of activity and smiling faces. Great events happen because people care about community and want to get involved. They are excited to give-back, participate, and connect.”
