Downtown Owen Sound is going to have some extra splashes of orange and black this weekend for Halloween.
The annual Halloween Haunt is being put on from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday by downtown merchants. Black and orange balloons will be placed outside of participating stores. Families are encouraged to wear costumes for the event and explore participating merchants' shops -- which will feature activities and hand out candy to trick-or-treating kids.
If you notice a teal balloon outside a store, that marks a location where allergy friendly treats will be available.
2nd Avenue East will be closed between 7th and 10th Streets for the Halloween Haunt.
Family-focused entertainment is planned as well including Klash the Clown, Sandcastle Theatre and the stilt walkers and hoola hoopers of the Collingwood Circus Club.
