MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)- Halloween is filled with spooky parties, haunted houses and lots and lots of candy.
And downtown Macon businesses are opening their doors to trick-or-treaters to add to the fun.
On Halloween from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., downtown Macon businesses and organizations will pass out candy and host events for the community.
Messenburg Park, located on Mulberry Street between Second and Third Streets, will serve as Halloween headquarters. There, you can pick up a map to help guide you on the Treat Trail.
Scott Mitchell, the chair of Downtown Macon Community Association, says alleys downtown are activated to provide carnival games.
“There’s a lot of fun things for kids to do on the streets,” Mitchell said. “Trick-or-treat on the streets and activities in the alley.”
Mitchell says downtown will also host a bar crawl until 10 p.m.
“We really try to build a downtown that is friendly and welcoming to people of all ages,” Mitchell said. “The Georgia Sports Hall of Fame will also have spooky movies playing throughout the night.”
Pets are welcome too!
