Back To Front Page

Businesses in the Chesterton Downtown will be offering trick-or-treating for Duneland families this year from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25.

Parents and their children should look for orange flyers in the windows of participating businesses along Indian Boundary, Calumet Road, and Broadway.

In addition, Chesterton United Methodist Church will be offering a “Trunk or Treat” event in the Duneland Chamber of Commerce parking lot, located at 220 Broadway. Duneland families will also be able to collect candy from organizations hosting booths in Thomas Centennial Park.

“Last year, we welcomed over 1,000 local children and their families to this trick-or-treating event,” Chamber Executive Director Heather Ennis said. “The streets were filled with little super heroes, witches, monsters and ghosts. It was fantastic! This year, we’ve expanded the celebration to welcome the Chesterton United Methodist Church and other organizations who wanted to give out candy downtown. Our parking lot and Thomas Centennial Park will be great spots to see Halloween decorations and pick up treats, in addition to storefronts along Indian Boundary, Calumet and Broadway.”

More: the Chamber will be hosting its annual Pumpkin Palooza event during the last Saturday of the European Market season, on Oct. 26. Visit the Market at Third Street and Broadway in Chesterton for trick-or-treating with the market merchants, free pumpkin decorating (8 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and a costume contest for kids (at 10 a.m.) and for puppies (at 11 a.m.).
