We also have received several calls about Halloween in Lower Village and wanted to pass along some information to everyone.
There is NO rain date for Halloween in the Lower Village
The activity on Halloween in the Lower Village is an organic community event that has been taking place in our community for many years. Meaning this is not an event that is being organized by the Recreation or Fire Rescue Departments. Our involvement as well as others is to help provide the safest environment possible for the youth of the community to enjoy on Halloween. The many trick or treaters would still visit the Lower Village on Halloween if our departments were not involved, so we have chosen to help support our neighbors of the Lower Village that embraces this very unique and wonderful Halloween celebration. In the end our goal is to help everyone have a FUN and SAFE Halloween.
