Annual Spooky Saturday

Downtown Carlisle,
Carlisle, PA 17013
(717) 243-1002
Visit Website

Children 13 and under are invited to come downtown to enjoy a day of daylight trick-or-treating and fall fun at participating businesses located on the event map while families discover the unique businesses and organizations who call downtown home. As a special nod to kids who missed their last Spooky Saturday last year, we'll be extending the age to 13.

There will be no paper maps this year due to COVID, so the map will be virtual and the link released on the morning of October 16 Georgie Lou's main Facebook page and on Destination Carlisle's Facebook page. There will also be a QR code at Georgie Lou's to link to the online map. The link will take you to a map on destinationcarlisle.com, a virtual guide to downtown that uses your location settings on your phone to guide you around downtown.

Businesses are being encouraged to keep their treat stations outside, and we are encouraging all participants to wear masks for protection against COVID-19. Families should obey all COVID protocols, traffic laws, and town ordinances while participating and take care while downtown. Please share this event with/invite your friends with children.

Spooky Saturday is the flagship event for Destination Carlisle's Halloweekend celebrating fall and Halloween with a weekend full of family fun activities.
