Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 12th from noon to 2 p.m. for Downtown Racine’s first-ever Candy Crawl. Bring your little monsters, princesses and Minions for a free trick-or-treating event. Forty participating Downtown businesses will be passing out treats.

Trick-or-treating bags and Candy Crawl maps will be given out at the Downtown Racine Office on 425 Main Street. Kids will receive stickers from every participating Candy Crawl business to put on their maps. If they visit over 20 businesses and bring back their map to the DRC office, they will be entered to win 1 of 5 kid’s prize packs. Maps must be returned to the DRC office by 4 p.m. on the day of the event.

“We are excited to offer a new family friendly event in Downtown which will showcase our amazing shops, galleries and restaurants along with the 17 new businesses that have opened in 2019,” said Kelly Kruse, Executive Director of the Downtown Racine Corporation.

The Candy Crawl will happen before the Monument Mash, which starts at 2 p.m. on Monument Square. Monument Mash will include a pumpkin carving contest, kid’s games, refreshments, music and children’s costume contest.
