The City of Owensboro will be hosting the 27th annual Trail of Treats on Thursday, October 27th from 5:30-8:00pm. And this is an awesome way to kick start your Halloween festivities and a GREAT way for your kids to get a bunch of candy.

Over 65 local businesses and organizations will be participating in this year’s event. Children and families will be able to trick-or-treat downtown while enjoying music and meet-and-greets from some of their favorite characters including the Minions, Batman, and Spiderman.

Due to Trail of Treats, 2nd Street and Veterans Blvd from Daviess Street to Frederica Street will be closed from 2:00pm until approximately 9:00pm.
