Information on Tonight’s Trick-or-Treating and Neighborhood Stoop Night in South Baltimore

| October 31, 2018 | 0 Comments

Federal Hill Main Street will be hosting its annual Halloween trick-or-treating event this afternoon/evening from 4pm to 6pm.  It will take place in Federal Hill’s business district, which is located on Charles St. and Light St. from Ostend St. to Montgomery St. Participating businesses will have orange balloons out front.

Neighborhood trick-or-treating in South Baltimore is expected to take place from approximately 530pm to 8pm. In previous years, busy corridors for trick-or-treaters on the South Baltimore Peninsula have included along Fort Ave.; Randall St. along Riverside Park; blocks east of Riverside Park on Covington St., Belt St., and Jackson St.; along Riverside Ave. and Battery Ave.; and on William St. in Federal Hill, as well as throughout Locust Point.

The South Baltimore Neighborhood Association (SBNA) is promoting an official stoop night following trick or treating from 8pm to 10pm. From the Facebook event:

Halloween is one of the great nights every year in South Baltimore as kids from the neighborhood and surrounding areas dress up and trick-or-treat.

One good way to ensure this year’s Halloween celebration ends as well as it starts is to encourage everyone to stay out on their front stoops, hang out with neighbors, and keep an eye on our neighborhood. One of the best deterrents to crime is bright, vibrant streets and eyeballs on the neighborhood.

Trick-or-treating runs from approximately 530pm to 8pm. This year, after trick-or-treating, we are encouraging you to join fellow neighbors for a stoop night on your block from 8pm-10pm.

Stoop nights, which have been a Baltimore tradition for generations, are always a fun way to meet new neighbors, mingle with longtime friends, and develop a strong bond on your block which can be beneficial in so many ways.

As always, if you witness any suspicious activity or crimes taking place, please call 911.

Have a great Halloween, South Baltimore! See you at trick-or-treating and at stoop night!
