Each year, Halloween night in downtown Scottsburg is filled with hundreds of children dressed as superheroes, ghosts, vampires, monsters, princesses, video game characters and unicorns as businesses and community organizations open their baskets to give out candy treats. This year’s Haunted Downtown and Trunk-or-Treat will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31.
Storefronts and trunks of participating organizations, clubs, churches and businesses will be decorated with fun, exciting and themed Halloween items to give children and families a safe, family-friendly environment to trick-or-treat.
Trick-or-treaters can visit the trunk-or-treat area of Haunted Downtown by visiting the parking lot on North Main Street. There, Scott County businesses and community organizations will offer treats and other alternate items during the two-hour period of festive family fun.
To further help families, the Scottsburg Main Street is encouraging businesses and organizations to have a teal pumpkin visible if the business or organization is offering treats that are suitable for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or intolerances.
A map of Haunted Downtown will be available, so families can see all of the businesses participating in the event. Maps will be available at the Scottsburg Train Depot located off of North Main Street, at the Scott County Sheriff’s Department located at the corner of Wardell and South First Street, at the Scott County Public Library located at the corner of Wardell and South Main Street, at Java Station located corner of State Road 56 and South Main Street and at Bob & Kev’s BBQ.
