Marquette Downtown Development Authority
The Marquette Downtown District will once again be providing a safe and fun opportunity for children to trick or treat. On Saturday, October 26, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., families can bring little ghosts and goblins door to door collecting goodies from downtown businesses.
Participating locations will have orange "Welcome Trick or Treaters" signs in their windows. Last year, more than 1,500 children and parents visited the district.
Following trick or treat, the City of Marquette and Downtown Development Authority will host the second annual Halloween Spectacle, a large-scale community outdoor performance of giant puppetry, percussion and theatrical dance. This year's theme is Heroes versus Villains and the community is encouraged to dress as their favorite character and pick a side. As the evening grows dark, the community is invited to join in processions throughout the City starting at 6:40 p.m. and converging in the Marquette Commons at 7 p.m. For more information, contact the Marquette Downtown Development Authority at 906-228-9475 or visit www.downtownmarquette.org.
