The Downtown Billings Alliance hosts a safe Halloween alternative for children accompanied by a parent or guardian from 12pm-5pm on October 31st. This free community event brings thousands of children in costume downtown to trick or treat at participating businesses that offer candy, healthy treats, and unique Halloween themes or activities. The Downtown Billings Alliance office at 116 N 29th St., Suite A operates as headquarters for the event and provides maps of the route and trick or treat bags for the children. In collaboration with organizations such as YMCA or the Alberta Bair Theater, the DBA facilitates a shuttle, making the route more accessible to the public. In addition to supplying over 5,000 pieces of candy, the DBA also provides balloons and posters to each participating business.
