Calling all ghosts, goblins, creatures and superheros. 

On Saturday, Oct. 14, visit participating businesses for the 4th annual Haunts On High downtown trick-or-treat. This year, Haunts On High will be held in conjunction with the Fall Art Walk 2017, so kids of all ages can experience a fun, free, creative evening as downtown Pottstown is transformed into its very own arts district with many activities to be enjoyed.

The day will kick-off at 11a.m. at either end of the downtown with free sugar cookie decorating at Beverly’s Pastry, 322 E High St (11a.m. – 1 p.m), Manatawny Green, 71 W High St, for scarecrow stuffing and snacks (11 a.m. through business hours while supplies last), and Pottsgrove Manor, 100 W King St, for tours and colonial crafts (11 a.m. – 3 p.m.)
One of two Mosaic Community Gardens, this one at 423 Chestnut St.
