About Trick-or-Treat

Boo! 👻 Downtown Trick-or-Treat is back for it's 5th annual spooky celebration. This is a free event open to ghouls and goblins of all ages. Wear your best Halloween costume and get ready for fun & frights! Our event is going to look a little different this year and, no, this is not a trick. Don't be spooked! This year we are partnering with the Louisiana Children's Discovery Center and they will host additional children's attractions at their brick-and-mortar. Participating Downtown Merchants will be handing out free candy (while supplies last).

A map of trick-or-treat stops will be available on our website and social media platforms on Wednesday, October 18th.

This family-friendly event has been a success in past years by bringing the downtown community together through sweet treats, a lively atmosphere, and a sense of togetherness. After you and your family gather your goodies, you can enjoy a Wednesday evening supper at one of our many locally-owned restaurants in Downtown Hammond.
