We will be handing out trick or treat bags to collect all the goodies. Duneland families will also be able to collect candy from organizations hosting booths in the parking lot as well.

“Last year, we welcomed over 1,000 local children and their families to this trick-or-treating event,” says Maura Durham, the Chamber’s President. “The streets were filled with little super heroes, witches, monsters and ghosts. It was fantastic! This year, we’ve expanded the celebration to welcome other organizations who wanted to give out candy downtown. Our parking lot and Thomas Centennial Park will be great spots to see Halloween decorations and pick up treats…in addition to storefronts along Indian Boundary, Calumet and Broadway.”
