Merchants of Hudson Trick or Treat

October 27, 4-6 PM

The Merchants of Hudson invite costumed youngsters to attend their annual trick or treat event from 4-6 PM along First & Main, Evaporator Works, and the Acme Plaza.

Due to the construction and the logistical challenges of dangerous sidewalks and changing traffic patterns, Main Street Merchants have put the public’s safety first and made the tough decision NOT be a part of the Merchant’s Trick or Treat event this year. 

We invite you to enjoy the Merchants’ Trick or Treat throughout First & Main and in Acme Plaza on Thursday, Oct 27th from 4-6 p.m., and watch for flyers and more information about exciting opportunities to shop and dine along Main Street in November.  We look forward to a city wide Merchant Trick or Treating event in 2017 with the Main Street streetscape completed.
