Do you want to go trick-or-treating this Halloween but feel as though you’re too old to dress up and go door-to-door for candy? If so, you’re in luck! Aurora Downtown, a nonprofit group of downtown business owners, is hosting the Third Annual Trick-or-Treat in Downtown event on Saturday, October 28 from 12 P.M. to 3 P.M.

To participate, Aurora citizens and their guests simply dress up in family-appropriate costumes and meet in downtown Aurora at 12 P.M., near the intersection of Stolp Avenue and Downer Place. From there, participants will travel around the downtown area by foot, stopping in at local businesses, restaurants and museums to receive treats.

This event also includes a Halloween bat-themed scavenger hunt that will take place the during the hours of the event. Red paper bats will be placed throughout the downtown area for participants to collect and redeem for treats

According to Marissa Amoni, events and community outreach director for Aurora Downtown, there are 40 businesses participating this year throughout downtown. Participating downtown businesses and storefronts include All Spoked Up Bicycle Shop and Leland Legends Bar & Grill. On the day of the event, orange paper pumpkins will be present in storefront windows to signify participation in the event.

To attend this event, there is no registration required. Additionally, this event is free of charge to the public, and Aurora citizens of all ages are welcomed to attend.
