Trick or Treat Downtown – Friday October 29th

Trick or Treat Downtown – Friday October 29th

Trick or Treat in Downtown is a Free annual event sponsored by Fuquay-Varina Downtown Association and participating Downtown Businesses.
Held from 2-5 because the largest number of businesses are able to participate and welcome trick or treaters. Families are invited to dress up their ghosts and goblins and visit the businesses in both downtown districts. Look for the sign “Trick or Treat Here!”

Want ALL of the treats? Visit both districts: Fuquay on Main St & Varina on Broad St!
Little trek for little tricksters: Visit Varina district first and walk both sides of Broad St. for approx 20 Trick or Treat spots
Treats Galore for kids who can walk a little more: Visit Fuquay district on Main and side streets for approx 50 Trick or Treat spots
The event is Rain or Shine. Thanks to FVPD for providing support for the safety of pedestrians.
