On Saturday afternoon, October 26, Glen Street will be closed for the annual community-wide Halloween block party, Boo 2 You Trick or Treat in downtown Glen Falls from 2pm to 4pm, run by The Glens Falls Business Improvement District.
Ghost, ghouls, goblins and grown-ups who like free candy pack Glen Street for wagon rides, entertainment, candy, games and craft stations throughout downtown. Families are invited to come in costume or come to see the amazing outfits and spend the afternoon taking a pony ride, visiting the petting zoo, getting your face painted, experiencing the bounce house or going through an inflatable obstacle course!
Walk through professional spooky street dancers and watch the performances (from the Adirondack Ballet Theater, Glens Falls Ballet and Dance, Adirondack Repertory Dance Theatre and Reality Dance Studio) as the sun sets over the Hudson. Businesses will be giving out free candy and various locations will have fresh, hot popcorn to feed the little trick-or-treaters. Stop by Sketch Design Studio to get your photo taken to be entered to win the Homemade Halloween Contest and win the prize of a $50 gift certificate.
Grab a spot on one of the wagon rides or, for the older set, watch the Hay Rides Fashion Show as our local models strut through the fall leaves in the park. Stop by the Presbyterian Church and make a donation to see the “PipeScreams Organ and Choral Concert.” Even after Boo 2 You trick-or-treating is over at 4pm, stick around and grab a $5 ticket to see Hocus Pocus at the Wood Theater.
Keep your eyes peeled as you navigate Glens Falls for Boo 2 You: zombie dancers are interactive at times, but there’s no need to worry: sweet and free treats await all who participate!

Businesses may choose to distribute their own treats
to the kids. However, businesses may instead choose to pay to be a sponsor of the
event and allow BID volunteers treats on their behalf.
