Benson's Hallofest Trunk-or-Treat Event Returns October 29th!



Hey Benson! We have some spooky good news for you! Hallofest — our annual trunk-or-treat event organized by Benson Parks & Recreation and several other local groups — is coming back! Get ready for all of the candy you can handle on Friday, October 29, 2021 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm! We’re super excited to bring back one of our most popular events! There’s nothing like Halloween on Main Street! 

If you’re interested in participating with a trunk, you will find more details on that below. Be sure to register as soon as possible — space is limited this year as we are putting more space between vehicles and staggering the layout on Main Street (cars will be lined up from Professional Eye Care at Benton Square to Walgreens on either side of the street). 

For those attending, public parking areas can be found at Town Hall (303 E. Church Street), the ABC Store lot (121 N. Railroad Street - enter from Church Street), and handicap parking will also be available in the First Citizens Bank lot (301 E. Main Street - enter from Church Street). Main Street will be fully closed by 6pm. 

Please note: there will be no trunks featuring games to help encourage the flow of trick-or-treaters from trunk to trunk — it’s all about the candy this year! In addition, there will be no food trucks this year, but we encourage attendees to grab a bite to eat or a snack at our local restaurants and shops on Main and in Downtown.
