Trick or Treat on 23rd Street will return as an option for trick-or-treating families in Richmond and surrounding communities.

The “spooktacular” annual event invites families to trick or treat at participating businesses and take part in fun activities on 23rd Street between Rheem and Roosevelt avenues.

Sim Metals, Chevron and Kaiser Permanente are among the event’s sponsors.

“Put on your most creative costume and bring your friends and family along for an evening of Halloween fun,” organizers said. “Whether you’re a fan of spooky ghosts, wicked witches, or adorable superheroes, this event welcomes everyone to stroll down 23rd Street and feel the Halloween spirit in the air.”
