“The Fountain District is such a welcoming and creative area of town. We’re excited to provide this opportunity for families to re-discover the many wonderful community resources that exist here,” says Kurt Gisclair, Director of The RE Store.

Families are invited to participate in the first annual Trick or Treat at the Fountain on Wednesday, October 31, 2018 from 2:30-5:30pm.

It is bordered to the south by Girard Street, to the north by W. Illinois Street, to the west by Elm Street, and to the east by Grove Street.

Businesses throughout the Fountain District will be participating and will announce their participation with a balloon by their front door. “Local businesses are so excited to take part in a trick-or-treating event. Many have been celebrating Halloween with activities and goodies for years and are excited to welcome other local businesses to the fun,” says Seana Olberg, Vice President Branch Manager of SaviBank.
