Update: Trick-or-treat will go on rain or shine. Our tented welcome area on the plaza outside 919 3rd Ave will be protected from the elements and will include face painting, a spooky photo booth, a costume donation station and more. There are still more than 100 treats to collect in the neighborhood and a little rain doesn't scare us!¬†ūüĎĽ

In celebration of Halloween, we are again inviting children 12 and under and their families to trick-or-treat at our local businesses!

Pick up your trick-or-treat bags, get your face painted, snap a spooky photo, enter our costume contest and more on the plaza outside 919 3rd Avenue (at East 56th Street) and then head out to collect treats at our participating businesses! 
 
Now in it's fifth year, Trick-or-Treat with East Midtown has welcomed 13,000 families to East Midtown and been featured in The Daily News, WNBC-NY, CBS New York, Mommy Poppins, Time Out, Time Out Kids, Macaroni Kid, NY Metro Parents, and many more!

This year, East Midtown is thrilled to¬†partner with¬†‚ÄėWeen Dream, a nonprofit that provides free costumes to kids who are facing challenges such as homelessness, special needs, the foster care system, and kids who have experienced a recent trauma or natural disaster.

'Ween Dream is an all-volunteer, national nonprofit that gives free Halloween costumes to children in need across America. These children, or ‚ÄėWEENSTERS, are faced with unique challenges,¬†including those with special needs, physical and/or mental disabilities, homeless children, kids living in poverty or at shelters, children with serious medical issues, kids in the foster care system, and kids who have experienced a recent trauma or natural disaster. Since ‚ÄėWeen Dream¬†began in 2014, over 13,000* ‚ÄėWEENSTERS have received costumes in 38 states!

 We'll have a collection area at 919 3rd Avenue and where you can donate gently used Halloween costumes! For details on what 'Ween Dream accepts, please click here.
