Family Halloween Party Invites Businesses To Participate, Announces Online Costume Contest



The Noblesville Parks and Recreation Department is currently making plans for its annual Family Halloween Party, which will be held on the weekend this year. The free event is 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, October 19 at Federal Hill Commons, 175 W. Logan Street – rain or shine.

Area businesses are invited to participate in the Trick-or-Treat Village with a Halloween-decorated booth and a game or activity for children ages three and up. Businesses are able to participate for free, but must register by e-mailing Assistant Parks Director Amber Mink at or calling (317) 776-6350.

“Participating is a great way for your office to show off your Halloween spirit and help provide a safe and fun trick-or-treat opportunity for residents,” Mink said.

Like last year, the costume contest will be an online photo competition. Categories include most creative, cutest, scariest and family. Those interested in entering the photo contest must submit their entries electronically by noon Monday, October 14. Photo contest entries may be submitted via e-mail to or by direct message to the Noblesville Parks and Recreation Facebook page.

Public voting will run 8 a.m. Tuesday, October 15 through noon, Friday, October 18 on the Noblesville Parks & Recreation Facebook page. The photos with the most “Likes” will be awarded and announced at the Halloween party, winners must be present to win.

“We are excited to continue the event at Federal Hill Commons, where we have more space for an extended Trick-or-Treat Village, which allows more businesses to join in on the Halloween fun,” said Mink. “We also are confident the earlier timing for the event will be more accommodating for families and other Halloween activities.”

The annual Family Halloween Party is sponsored by the Hamilton County Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs.

The official trick-or-treat hours in the City of Noblesville will be from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, October 31. The Noblesville Police Department will have extra patrols out that evening to provide additional security.
