Celebrate Halloween Downtown (and with Sparky)

Gather the ghouls and goblins to prep for a night of trick-or-treating or trick-or-greeting in Historic Downtown Branson.

Trick or Treating Kids

The past couple of Halloweens have been lackluster for many. Much of the “magic” was missing and people had to get creative with celebrations.

This year, celebrate old traditions married with new with Sparky the Trolley as your guide.

Treat yourself to mouth-watering desserts.

No tricks necessary.

Greeting trick-or-treaters is a tough job. Parting with the fun-sized Reeses and Snickers is even tougher.

Hop on Sparky and exit near one of the many nostalgic candy stores downtown. Or, if you want flavors of the season, stop by The Pie Safe for a fall-spiced pie to munch on between the ringing of the doorbell.

Tell some spooky bench stories.

After visiting some of the local shops to stock up on last-minute spooky supplies, make some memories by sitting on a bench to make up spooky stories about the people passing by.

You’ll never know who or what you’ll see when you slow down and pay attention.

Take the kiddos on a costumed trolley ride.

Have the kids don their costumes and ride Sparky around downtown Branson. Cute kids, adorable trolley, and fun costumes — Snap an Instagram-worthy photo you’ll cherish for years to come.

Trick-or-treat at the Branson Landing.

Sparky can take you to Branson Landing for your pre-trick-or-treating around 5:00. It allows for enough time to gather some candy and ride Sparky back to your car by 6:00.

Sparky the Trolley runs from 9 AM to 6 PM.

Watch Stephen King’s “Carrie” performed live.

Celebrating with your teens or on a date night in the days before Halloween?

Build suspense by watching The Branson Regional Arts Council present the Broadway version of Steven King’s Classic Thriller, “Carrie The Musical” (PG-14) at the Historic Owen Theatre from October 28th to the 30th.

Reserve tickets via BransonArts.org/tix or by calling the box office at 417-336-4255.

Tomorrow it will be Christmas!

Enjoy this week’s fall festivities because, in true Branson fashion, in one sleep it will be Ozark Mountain Christmas.

Christmas trees, holiday lights, and nativity scenes are going up around town — and Branson will light up on November 1st.
