On October 31st, join a community of costumed adults, children, and pets at The Market Common from 5 – 7 p.m. for what has become an annual tradition of trick-or-treating at the stores, restaurants and entertainment venues. Others will come to enjoy the festive people-watching from the outdoor seating areas of most of The Market Common’s eateries. The Headless Coachman returns to offer Complimentary Haunted Carriage Rides, and a Monster Mash outdoor dance party for kids and adults will be thrown on the Grand 14 Plaza, both from 5 – 8 p.m. 810 Billiards & Bowling will host a kids’ costume contest at 7 p.m., and an adult contest the following night on November 1st.
