The children of Warren County will have no shortage of options when it comes to trick-or-treating this Halloween.

General trick-or-treating around the city is expected to take place on Halloween night, Oct. 31. Because that falls on a Sunday, many people have asked if trick-or-treating will be moved to Saturday.

McMinnville officials have said they don’t determine when people celebrate holidays and suggested for people to trick-or-treat on Halloween. The city’s early curfew will be in effect on Halloween night, meaning all juveniles must be off the street by 9 p.m.

Multiple churches and other organizations are having their own trick-or-treat events either on or before Halloween. 

For those who want to get started early, Westwood Church of Christ is holding a Fun Fest on Wednesday night, Oct. 27, beginning at 6 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to put on their costumes and enjoy games, face painting, food, candy and fabulous prizes.

This Friday is Trick-or-Treat Downtown McMinnville where trick-or-treaters go from business to business gathering candy from 2 to 5 p.m. Participating businesses will have a pumpkin displayed in their window.

Also on Friday, there will be a drive thru trunk-or-treat at the Children’s Advocacy Center on Sparta Street from 2 to 5 p.m.

Hot Wheels Skate Center will have a Scary Skate and Costume Contest on Friday from 7 to 11 p.m. Admission is $8 and skate rental is an additional $2. The costume contest will be at 8 p.m. with six different categories. There will be prizes for each winner.

On Halloween day there is a variety of options for trick-or-treaters. Christ United Methodist Church, 200 Chapel Drive, is holding its Fall Harvest Fest from 5 to 7 p.m. where there will be chips, drinks, and goodies. Pioneer Community Church, 1707 Yager Road, is holding Fear Not Fest from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This is a countywide trunk-or-treat event open to everyone.

McMinnville Parks and Recreation is having Trail of Treats at Milner Recreation Center from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Halloween night.

The Vine Baptist Church, 65 Robinson Road, is having trunk-or-treat Oct. 31 from 3 to 5 p.m.

Central Church of Christ is participating in the fall fun too by having a trunk-or-treat on Halloween day from 3 to 5 p.m. and an outdoor service to follow at 5 p.m. First United Methodist Church will also be having a trunk-or-treat event from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

No trick-or-treater should go home empty handed this Halloween with all of these options available.
