Saturday,  October 24, 2020
Historic Downtown Carrollton
4:30 - 6:00 pm & Movie at sunset

 

 

Drive through Downtown Carrollton for a trunk or treat giveaway including candy, pumpkins, and crafts! Stick around until sunset for a FREE showing of The Nightmare before Christmas(1993), and participate the week leading up to the event in a mobile scavenger hunt and costume contest! 

Ghost Town will be downsized this year in order to promote social distancing. The following aspects have been modified: 

 Drive-thru trunk or treat 4:30-6pm

 

Drive thru Downtown Carrollton to pick up candy, a mini pumpkin, and crafts in the convenience of your vehicle. All participants passing out candy will be wearing gloves and masks.  The drive thru will take place on Elm St. When entering the drive-thru from Broadway St., please turn onto 2nd Ave to avoid traffic disruption on Broadway St. Drive thru begins at 4:30pm and will go until 6pm (unless all participants run out of candy). Click here to view how to enter the event. 

 

  "First come, first- served" movie showing at sunset 

 

There will be socially distanced seating areas marked for each family on the lawn area. These spaces comfortably fit 4-5 people and are extremely limited in order to meet distancing guidelines. Seating will become available at 6:15pm and are available on a first come basis. Don't forget to bring your own lawn chairs and blankets!
