Trick or Treat in Sturbridge, MA

Trick or Treat in Sturbridge, MA

sturbridge trick or treat

Halloween falls on Sunday, October 31, this year.  In the town of Sturbridge, we have set hours for trick-or-treat, which is then followed by our annual Horribles Parade on the Town Common.

The 2010 Trick-or-Treat hours for Sturbridge are from 5 to 7 pm.  In my neighborhood, we usually start to see kids come around by 5:15 pm, and then things wind down by 6:30 pm so everyone can go to the Horribles Parade.  But we leave our lights on until 7 pm for the odd straggler or older kid who is not yet ready to give up trick-or-treating.

At the Horribles Parade, costumed children have the chance to win prizes for best costume.   The kids gather behind the Town Hall and then parade around the Common.  Prizes are awarded, and there is hot chocolate and other goodies to enjoy.  The kids love this event; the darkness highlights the excitement and mystery of the Halloween holiday.

This year, the Sturbridge Firefighters Association and the Sturbridge Lions Club are our wonderful sponsors of the Horribles Parade. The Boy Scouts from Troop 161 will also be present to assist attendees.

If you plan to attend, be aware of the construction that has been going on.  Main Street (Route 131) near the Town Common is in good shape, but there may be construction equipment near by.  Parking can be found behind the town hall on Maple Street, down Charlton Street, and also behind the Publick House Inn.


happy halloween

Kathryn, It all sounds like a lot of fun. May I suggest that parents bring their own award for best costume so if their child doesn't win a prize mom and dad can award them with one on location.
