Whether you plan to celebrate Halloween on Friday, Saturday or Sunday this year, there are plenty of free activities in Utah County next week to keep the whole family entertained. 

Highland City residents will get a head start on the Halloween fun with Highland’s Trick-or-Treat Street, which will take place on Monday from 5-7 p.m. at the Town Center Splash Pad. 

“Bring your family to Splash Pad Park for trick or treating with local businesses and community groups.” read the announcement on the Highland City website. “Please enter the park through the south gates- watch for the big orange arch. The path through the park is accessible to strollers, wheelchairs and wagons. Please leave scooters and bikes home for this one. Overflow parking is available on the south side of City Hall.” 

To kick off the Halloween festivities on Friday, the American Fork Chamber of Commerce will host Halloween on Main, an event where children are invited to trick-or-treat from 300 W to 100 E. Main St. in American Fork from 3:30-5:30 p.m. 

Springville City is also giving residents an early start on the Halloween fun with its annual Safe Halloween Trick-or-Treat event, which will also take place on Friday from 3-5 p.m.  

According to the Springville City website, “The annual Safe Halloween Trick-or-Treat provides an opportunity for children and youth to come dressed in their favorite costumes and trick-or-treat around the Civic Center and Springville Main Street, where several businesses have lined up in a safe, friendly environment to give out great treats and possibly some tricks. Come and have a ‘spooky-tacular’ time!” 

Lindon City will host a Halloween Spook-Tacular on Friday at 25 N. Main St. in Lindon. This event will be from 6-7:30 p.m. and feature trunk-or-treating, a Halloween-themed spook alley, a costume contest, a flashlight candy search and a pumpkin decorating contest. 

On Saturday, the City of Orem’s Truck-or-Treat event will take place at the Orchard at University Place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This event will put a Halloween twist on the city’s annual Touch-a-Truck event where children are invited to touch and explore the utility vehicles that service Orem. Children are invited to dress up and bring bags fit for collecting candy.

Spanish Fork and Salem residents are also invited to join in on the Halloween fun on Saturday with the Trick-or-Treat on Main event hosted by the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce. Children are encouraged to dress up and trick-or-treat at businesses from the Library Park to 400 N. Main St. in Spanish Fork from 1-3 p.m. 

Also on Saturday, from 3-6 p.m., Downtown Provo will host trick-or-treating at local businesses between 500 West and 100 East on Center Street, and from there to 300 North in Provo. Games and dancing will also take place.
