Trick or Treat on Main Scary Goblins

Looking for something to do for a pre-Halloween weekend in the NW Suburbs Chicago area?  Go Trick or Treat on Main, Wauconda IL!  We held a FREE Trick or Treat event on Main Street, Wauconda IL, Sunday, October 28th from 3-6pm.  It was our first event to host something like this and it turned up a huge audience!  There were at least 1000 people there.  I took some photos, and caught one car with a license plate from Kentucky!

The Trick or Treat on Main was an event for everyone in the family, including pets!  Check out the following list of featured attractions that were offered below.

The event featured:

  • Pet Costume Contest
  • Scavenger Hunt
  • Spooky Stories
  • Pumpkin Carving Contest
  • FREE Shuttle to and from the event
  • And did I mention it was a FREE event?

The streets were filled with children in halloween costumes, dogs in halloween costumes, and yes, some of the parents were dressed in their halloween costumes too.  It was a very fun event.  I posted about Trick or Treat on Main on Facebook and read what the community had to say about it.

And of course, it wouldn’t have been possible without the collaborative efforts of the businesses of Wauconda.  The Trick or Treat on Main was sponsored by the following businesses:

  • Middleton’s on Main
  • Bulldog’s Grill
  • Bliss Wine & Gifts
  • Aspire Boutique
  • Metlife
  • Honey Hill Coffee
