Additional Information: In 1972, there was fear of needles in candy and razor blades in apples. Tom Jehl, owner of Georgetown Square Shopping Center, decided to start a safe Halloween night with the Georgetown Merchants. It has gone on every year since. It was the first shopping center in the country to hold such an event and the longest running event of its kind. This is its 40th Anniversary!! Before there was Halloween at the Zoo or St. Vincent Haunted Castle…..Trick or Treat at Georgetown was here. This has become a Fort Wayne tradition, many of the parents bringing their young children trick or treated at Georgetown as children themselves!
