Treats on the Town

 Double the trick-or-treating fun this Halloween at these downtown trick-or-treat events. New Boston’s “Triple Treat” will include a trunk-or-treat in the Town Hall parking lot as well as trick-or-treating at the Recreation Office. Head to the Deerfield Fairgrounds for a costume parade and tailgate trick-or-treating. Derry will have a Spooktacular Costume Parade & Contest in downtown with prizes for the best costumes, followed by a trick-or-treat with participating businesses. Stop by the Milford Oval, where the Recreation Department will be hosting a costume contest and handing out candy and small toys. A trunk-or-treat will be held at the Raymond Shopping Center, and Londonderry businesses will be handing out treats at the Trick-or-Treat on Main Street event. 

Don’t miss the biggest downtown trick-or-treat event, Intown Concord’s Annual Halloween Howl, which includes more than 50 participating businesses and attracts as many as 5,000 people. 
“The businesses will open their doors or set up tables outside their doorway so the kiddos can go trick-or-treating from store to store,” said Susan Sokul, Intown events and communications coordinator. “And it lets families meet up and chit-chat with neighbors and just enjoy being in downtown.”
The Halloween Howl will also feature music, a dance party and costume parade, a kids’ craft project, an all-ages open mike, a haunted bus and playground put on by the YMCA and costumed superheroes from Double Midnight Comics. 
While most families do both downtown and neighborhood trick-or-treats, the downtown events offer an alternative for families living in an area without many houses or for those concerned about the safety of neighborhood trick-or-treats. 
“For people who live in a rural environment and travel into Concord, [Halloween Howl] may replace their neighborhood trick-or-treat,”  Sokul said. “It provides a safe, fun, community-based evening for the kids.”
