The Spooktacular was launched over 20 years ago, by members of Great Falls Friends to provide younger children with a central, convenient place in Great Falls to have fun trick or treating. It was because of their initiative that still today we have Great Falls vendors offering candy around the Village Green as well as in the Safeway shopping center at the corner of Georgetown Pike and Walker Road.
Children are encouraged to wear their best Halloween costume, experience the Haunted House, and enjoy trick or treating right in the heart of town.
