The annual “Trail of Treats” will return to downtown Owensboro on Oct. 27, the City of Owensboro announced Friday afternoon. The City cancelled the event the last two years, but in 2021 community members organized a trick-or-treat in the parking lot of Towne Square Mall. City officials said they are glad to be able to offer the event downtown again.
“We are looking forward to the return of the annual Trail of Treats event downtown this fall,” said Tim Ross, Director of Public Events. “It was frustrating for us to have to cancel it the last couple of years during the pandemic, but we are looking forward to everyone coming together for a massive trick-or-treat event that the whole community can enjoy downtown to kick-off the Halloween weekend.”
The family friendly event will consist of more than 60 booths sponsored by local businesses and organizations. Children and families will be able to trick-or-treat downtown while enjoying music and meet-and-greets from some of their favorite characters.
Businesses and organizations who are interested in sponsoring a booth can download the entry form at Owensboro.org/trail-of-treats. There are a limited number of spaces available, and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
