Wilton’s annual Halloweekend events return with the annual Pumpkin Parade and Trick-or-Treating on Saturday, Oct. 27, followed by the Halloween Hustle 5K on Sunday, Oct. 28. Participants will find a few changes this year.
For one, Old Ridgefield Road will be closed to traffic on Oct. 27 from the beginning of the Pumpkin Parade at 2:30 until trick-or-treating is over at 4:30. The parade begins at the gazebo on the Town Green and will be led again by the Cat in the Hat. Closing the road will ensure the safety of the hundreds of ghosts, goblins, witches, superheroes and others, along with their families and pets. After the parade, there will be trick-or-treating at Wilton Center businesses.
