Clowns, gowns, and ghouls: Costumed families flock to Mass Street for Halloween trick-or-treating

Share this post or save for later

On Halloween night, Lawrence families showed off their cute, creepy, and creative costumes during downtown trick-or-treating. The annual event was held from 5 p.m. until all the candy ran out.


Shop owners along Massachusetts Street set up stations outside their own front doors, donning bowls of treats and costumes of their own, as they offered candy and a sense of community to the passing crowds. The event also featured live music outside The Granada and food vendors including Amber Scullery, a Cajun food truck operated by local chef Amber Brown.
