Fort Collins, CO – On the morning of Wednesday, October 31st, the Downtown Fort Collins community invites children and their families to creep along the sidewalks of Old Town for the free, kid-safe, community trick-or-treating experience, Tiny Tot Halloween presented by COUNTRY Financial!
This family-friendly Halloween celebration, now in its 31st year, takes place from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in Downtown Fort Collins. Participants will gather in Old Town Square Plaza beginning at 10 a.m. to receive a trick-or-treat bag (while supplies last) with a map indicating the designated trick-or-treat area. Trick-or-treat bags and route maps are available at the branded COUNTRY Financial tent located in the middle of Old Town Square. As you grab your bag and map, be sure to enter your email address at the COUNTRY Financial tent or either Information Booth located in Old Town Square or Oak Street Plaza to register to win a $100 Downtown Gift Card redeemable at over 150 business in Old Town.
Then, the tiny skeletons, ghosts and witches will venture along the sidewalks of Old Town collecting treats from costumed staff members and their decorated storefronts.
Trick-or-treating is available at select downtown businesses along College Avenue, Walnut Street, and Mountain Avenue. Crossing guards will be present at major intersections to ensure everyone’s safety.
