Trick or treating and Halloween events in the region

Kids lost out at last year’s pandemic non-Halloween Halloween.

Good news for them: the costumes and sweets and trick-or-treating are back this year.

On Sunday, for instance, Olde Mistick Village offers a Trick or Trent event for costumed characters from 4 to 6 p.m. That same day, the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme encourages visitors for its Wee Fairie Village exhibition to dress up in costume from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Also on Sunday, Mystic Seaport Museum holds a Community Trick or Treat Scavenger Hunt. Kids age 12 and under who are wearing costumes can get into the museum free all day Sunday. Then, from 3 to 6 p.m., the community can also go in for free to take part in the Trick or Treat and Scavenger Hunt, searching for treats hidden in the museum’s Shipbuilding Village.

Also at the Seaport, from tonight through Saturday, folks can take a Jack-o-Lantern Walk — several hundred jack-o-lanterns are on site — from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Visit the for more details and to buy tickets.

On Saturday, children with intellectual, developmental and physical challenges and their families can trick or treat at the Miracle League field behind Flanders Elementary School in East Lyme from 1 to 3 p.m.

Folks who lean more toward the ghostly end of the holiday can listen to local legends while walking through one of Norwich’s oldest graveyards; visit for details and required registration for this Friday night event.
