Beggar’s Nights are coming up around Marion County. In Pella, Knoxville, and Pleasantville, Beggar’s Night is Monday the 31st from 6-8 pm. Bussey will also have theirs on Monday, the 31st, from 5-7:30 pm. Melcher-Dallas will be hosting Beggars’ Night on Sunday, the 30th, from 6-8pm. Pella Interim Police Chief Lt. David Beukelman says while having fun that evening is important, safety is the top concern. He reminds trick-or-treaters and their parents to know what routes will be taken, to make costumes visible during the dark hours and to travel in groups.
