Seymour Main Street will host its annual Downtown Trick or Treat from 4 to 6 p.m. Oct. 24 at participating downtown locations.
Families may walk the downtown in costumes for children to receive candy and treats from local businesses.
The Seymour Police Department will direct traffic at major intersections, and participants should only cross streets in the marked pedestrian crosswalks.
“We love this event and seeing all of the kids dressed up and having a great time in our downtown,” said Bri Roll, executive director of Seymour Main Street. “A huge thank you to the SPD for their help directing traffic as well as all of the participating businesses who donate their time and treats to make this event successful.”
A map showing the locations of participating businesses will be available closer to the event date. Follow Seymour Main Street on Facebook, where updates will continue to be posted.
At 6 p.m., hundreds of people also will be lining the streets to enjoy the Seymour Evening Lions Club’s annual Halloween parade and hear some spooky hits from the Seymour High School band. The parade will begin at the Seymour Post Office and conclude in the Smalltown Plaza parking lot, where the night will be finished off with a costume contest.
Businesses interested in participating in Downtown Trick or Treat may contact Roll at [email protected] to register. There is no fee to register, but participants are encouraged to bring candy or kid-friendly items to hand out during the event.
