Downtown Statesville Trick or Treating
Trick or Treat on in the Downtown Statesville Business District on October 31 (Rescheduled for November 1, 2019 from 4pm-6pm) is an annual event hosted by the downtown merchants and businesses. From 4-6 pm, the sidewalks come to life with thousands of children and parents taking part every year. Participating businesses will display an orange pumpkin with the downtown logo as its nose in their window and will give away candy to costumed kids aged 12 and younger. Any questions about the event can be directed to DSDC at 704-878-3436.
***Given the forecast for possible severe weather on Thursday afternoon and evening, we have rescheduled Thursday’s Trick or Treat Event in Downtown Statesville for Friday night 11/01 from 4-6 p.m. This special event is sponsored by Downtown Statesville Development Corporation and hosted by individual participating businesses throughout downtown. It does not speak for the City, County or what any neighborhoods may be doing.***
