Are you prepared to have fun with your neighbors tomorrow? The Broadway Hometown HalloweenFest kicks off at 4pm at the Town Office (corner of Main St and Broadway Ave) with spooktacular games including our famous cupcake walk!
Little spooks can Trick-Or-Treat with Main Street businesses (those with orange balloons are the ones participating) until the candy runs out. Bring them back to the Town Office for a costume contest beginning promptly at 6pm! Age groups are:
- Infant to 3 years old
- 4 to 8 years old
- 9 to 12 years old
- 13 to 17 years old (new group added this year!)
We also have face painting and ballon animals, and Cargill of Timberville’s Symbold of Hope team will be selling pork barbecue. Hope to see you spooking on Main Street!
Broadway businesses will be offering treats for the community on Thursday, October 26th! Fun, games and prizes abound! Bring your children/family in their best costumes for the Hometown Costume Contest, which begins promptly at 6pm.

This is a town-sponsoredd event and is not the same as traditional residential trick-or-treating. The Town of Broadway does not determine, enforce or coordinate a Trick-or-Treat time. If you have questions about when people will be Trick-or-Treating in your neighborhood, please talk to your neighbors. Each neighborhood or residence decides when (or if at all) to pass out candy for Halloween Trick-or-Treaters. If you do not wish to participate, leave your porch light off. If you are seeking candy, do not approach a house without a porch light on!
Always keep in mind a few safety tips when trick‐or‐treating this Halloween:
- Plan your route ahead of time: Trick-or-Treat in familiar neighborhoods.
- Make certain costumes do not inhibit vision and will not cause tripping or falling.
- Teach children to never enter a person’s home or vehicle.
- Pick a place to meet in case you get separated and write down emergency contacts.
- Trick‐or‐treat earlier in the evening to finish before it gets too dark.
- All Halloween Trick-or-Treaters should have a flashlight or a device that helps motorists be able to see you while walking through neighborhoods on dark roads.
- Children should never trick‐or‐treat alone and always be accompanied by an adult.
- Only approach homes that are familiar and well‐lit both inside and out.
- Walk with your head up and be aware of your surroundings.
- Stay on the sidewalks and out of the streets. Cross only at intersections and designated crosswalks.
- Respect other people and their property.
- Motorists should be alert and watch out for pedestrians near the roadway.
- Report any suspicious individual or criminal activity to an adult or the police.
- Adults should examine children’s candy before they consume it.
We hope you have a safe and sweet Halloween!
