The Marquette Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is organizing a trick-or-treat event, aiming to bring together the local community and support downtown businesses. Participating businesses will welcome families in costumes from 4 to 7 p.m., with no cost of entry. For safety purposes, Washington Street will be closed between Fourth and Front Streets during the event.
A Spooky Weekend Ahead in Downtown Marquette
The Marquette Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is set to host its annual downtown Trick-or-Treating event this Saturday. Families in and around Marquette are invited to dress up and participate in the much-anticipated event between 4 and 7 p.m. Participating downtown businesses will have signs in windows, indicating where treats can be collected.
Traffic Restrictions Ensuring Family Safety
For the safety of families, Washington Street will be closed between Fourth and Front Streets. The social district will also pause during this time. DDA typically hosts events to support businesses, but this event is primarily targeted at family fun.
Engaging with the Community
Michael Bradford, Marquette DDA Business Outreach and Promotions Director, highlighted the social significance of the event. He expressed, “This is about the social fabric of this community and bringing everybody downtown. There’s no cost of entry, it encourages families and their kids to engage with the businesses while collecting candy.”
In addition to the downtown event, residential trick-or-treating will be held on Halloween day from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.
