Trick or Treat on the Square
Bring your family to downtown East Troy, wear your best costumes and get your fill of candy, coupons and other Halloween specials from participating merchants from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31, along with fellow trick-or-treaters in the Village of East Troy, Town of East Troy and Town of Troy.
Start your trick-or-treating off at East Troy Village Square Park by visiting the East Troy Area Chamber of Commerce booth for candy and a special #EastTroy gift.
Hundreds of lit pumpkins, carved by East Troy Prairie View Elementary School students and donated by Bower’s Produce, will line the walkways at East Troy Village Square Park.
Downtown merchants and local organizations will be giving out treats to costumed children from 5 to 7:30 p.m. or while supplies last. Participating merchants will have an orange balloon outside their door.
“It’s a wonderful chance to get in the spirit and also visit your favorite local businesses,” said Vanessa Lenz, Executive Director of event organizer, East Troy Area Chamber of Commerce. “We are hoping for the downtown trick-or-treating to become a manageable extension of East Troy’s popular Main Street trick-or-treat experience. It’s a small, safe area to cover, and the whole family can enjoy it.”
Grown-ups can join their children for some howling good, spooky fun at the Walk of Terror, located in the municipal lot, 2108 Church St., adjacent to the East Troy Area Historical Society. Halloween night will feature a special kid-friendly haunted house from 5 to 8 p.m.
The spine-chilling haunted house geared toward adults will run from 6 to 11 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19 and Saturday, Oct. 20 and Friday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 27. Admission is $10. All proceeds will go to the East Troy Volunteer Fire Department.
The elaborate haunted house will offer experiences for both adults and children and organizers promise that this year’s event will be bigger and better than ever. For more information, visit walkofterror.com
