Halloween Trick-Or-Treat on Broad Street


Mark your calendar, and charge your phone and camera batteries, for the annual Halloween Block Party in downtown Globe, Monday night, Oct. 31. The massive event can draw thousands of costumed characters all along Broad Street ready to meet, greet and trick-or-treat.

The Trick-or-Treat runs from 5:30-7 p.m., or until each station runs out. Start anywhere along Broad Street from Yuma Street to Sycamore Street, Sycamore Street to Yuma Street, or in between. Entering the line anywhere in the zone will help disperse the hugely congested crowd of tiny  batmen and princesses that pile up at Sycamore.

Organizers plan four music staging areas, car show participants, family trunk-or- treat stations, sidewalk chalking, a storefront decorations contest with people’s choice voting and, for the kiddos young & old, the 1910 territorial jail will be open as a “spooky jail” for tours.

Like and follow the event  page, facebook.com/events/880018359623807, for updates and confirmation about specifics – such as a social media photo booth, media pumpkin carving and costume contest.

From 4 – 9 p.m. on Oak Street look for food trucks and vendors.
