Get Ready to Trick-or-Treat with East Midtown

The East Midtown Partnership will host "Trick-or-Treat with East Midtown" for the fourth consecutive year on Wednesday, October 31, from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Last year our event attracted more than 4,000 people and we expect even bigger numbers in 2018! 

More than 85 local businesses will be handing out treats, and more are signing up each day. We'll also have face-painting, a spooky Halloween-themes photo booth, and more FREE FAMILY FUN at our check-in site: the plaza at 919 Third Avenue (corner of East 56th Street). Visit our website for more information.

If you're a local business owner/manager who'd like to get involved and welcome local trick-or-treaters (and their parents, of course), click here. There is no cost to participate... except for the treats you provide, of course. See images from our past events on our Flickr page.
