Here’s something new for Halloween, a downtown Wichita Falls Trick or Treat event with tons of places to stop and gather some tasty goodies!

You’ll want to start at Connect Packing and Shipping, they’re on Ohio Avenue between The Yard food truck court and the Farmers Market. When you’re there you’ll get your passport and treasure map to take you to all of the participating downtown businesses.

There are plenty of places to stop, just remember to get your passport stamped at each one. When you’ve got 8 stamps, you can get a free gelato at Odd Duck Coffee and a free kid’s meal from Highlander Public House. When you get 15 stamps on your passport, you can bring it to the Coo Room at 804 8th Street (that’s next to the Highlander Public House) and be entered into multiple prize drawings for the parents!

Downtown Wichita Falls has turned into quite the bustling place with plenty of unique and interesting local businesses from coffee and cigar shops to vintage resale boutiques to gymnastic centers to art galleries to live theatre venues; and several of them will be looking for you and your colorfully costumed kiddos between 4pm and 7pm Halloween night.
