Halloween in downtown Ridgefield just got a little sweeter for families!

The annual Halloween Walk in the Main Street area is from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. This is a great morning of costumes (not just on children), candy and campaigning, yes, it’s an Election Year!

The Halloween Walk is made possible by the downtown merchants and organizations and the Holiday Trust Fund.

If you’re still not tired from all the walking, at 12 noon, children ages six and under are invited to the Main Program Room of the Ridgefield Library for Marcia Lewis’ Halloween concert, Halloween Fun for the Very Young.

Then, beginning at 5 p.m.,  the Ridgefield Police Department will host the annual Children’s Halloween Party at the Lounsbury House/Ridgefield Community Center for children 12 and younger.  Of course, there will be candy, music and decorations, and we hear a gypsy fortuneteller will be available for fun and games. This event lasts until 9 p.m.

The annual Children’s Halloween Party is made possible by Ridgefield Police Officers, Ridgefield teens, and staff members of the Lounsbury House.

Also, beginning at 5 p.m., enter the fantastical world of Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and the Red Queen on The Terrace at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. Get your picture taken in front of the larger-than-life Alice in Wonderland-themed photo booth and get a sense of what it would be like to be shrunk-down to her size. Instagram your own photo with the hashtag #ACAMHalloween and see your photo projected on the wall of the Museum! This event lasts until 8 p.m.

ALL events are FREE to the public.
