Once upon a time, a family in the Briers North Subdivision decided to add some larger-than-life decorations to their home for Halloween. A number of people stopped by to admire them and began trick-or-treating in our quiet neighborhood.
The next year, encouraged by the positive response, more families decorated their homes and wore costumes to give candy to trick-or-treaters. Even more visitors came by to trick-or-treat that Halloween. And so the tradition grew until the number of visitors in 2004 was estimated in excess of 5,000. Halloween @ Briers North continues to bring visitors from around Georgia, as well as from outside of the state. The community's households all contribute to the celebration: whether it is distributing candy, adding decorations, or paying for the cost of Police to direct traffic and keep everyone safe. You may even find a haunted house or two!
Trick-or-treating will be welcomed in Briers North
from 6 pm to 8:30 pm on Wednesday, October
Parking For 2012:
We have learned that North Peachtree Baptist Church at the corner of Tilly Mill and North Peachtree will not be holding a fall festival this year. The church has donated the use of the parking lot to their Explorer Scouts. The Scouts will be raising funds by accepting donations for parking at the church parking lot. Help out the Explorer Scouts when you come to see us at Halloween.
