The Town of Simsbury will host a free town-wide Halloween celebration on Wednesday, October 30 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at the Simsbury Public Library, located at 725 Hopmeadow Street. Free admission includes a magic display, storytelling, trick-or-treating and more!
Celebrate Halloween early by coming dressed in your favorite costume! In addition to a costume parade, guests of all ages will be entertained by Magic of Christopher, hear a Halloween story with one of Simsbury’s most entertaining librarians, decorate a personalized bag for trick-or treating, and then use it to collect goodies in the library.
“For the last two years, Halloween has been interrupted by late October storms,” says First Selectman Mary Glassman. “We wanted to offer families a safe option for Halloween, where we can all join together and have fun.”
This event is open to the public, and there is no charge for admission. In addition to all of the merriment, each child that comes dressed in costume will receive a coupon for a free kid’s scoop of ice cream, to be redeemed at J. Foster’s Ice Cream, located at 894 Hopmeadow Street.
This event is made possible by Simsbury Parks and Recreation, Simsbury Public Library Children’s Room, and Simsbury Social Services. For more information about this event, please contact Gerry Toner, Culture Parks and Recreation, at 860-408-4682.
