Trick or Treating
Every year we do the Lebanon Green for trick or treating with the little ones because there’s so much to do in a small walking space. The Powerhouse Mall in West Lebanon usually does trick or treating from 4-6 pm and is great for little ones. Trick or treating around town starts at 6 pm and goes until 8 pm. Lebanon is doing a pumpkin carving display on the green this year. You can sign up here.
You can also try these top spots people recommend.
Sunrise Village in Quechee on Hartland Road by the Shell Station off Route 4/Gilson Road has a lot of kids who trick or treat there. Woodstock closes down High Street so you can loop around the village. If you want to donate candy to help the cause the police station and town hall collect donations to help offset the extensive cost to families who have trick or treaters from all around join in the fun.
Colonial Drive in Wilder is a lovely neighborhood loop. There’s a big haunted house on the road that people recommend.
Seminary Hill, some houses ‘go all out.’ Elm Street and School Street are popular streets to trick or treat on. There will be a haunted house on Elm Street. Eldridge Street also has decorated houses and a fun place to trick or treat.
One person recommended trick or treating along Main Street where all the houses are decorated for Halloween. Town-designated trick-or-treating hours are from 5 to 8 p.m. on Halloween.
