Boo!Burg Returns to Bloomsburg

On Friday, October 27th beginning at 5:30 p.m., part of Bloomsburg transforms into “BOO!burg”.

Join the Bloomsburg YMCA, The Exchange, Agape, The Children’s Museum, Mike’s Food Truck, First Keystone Bank, and Naps for a night of spooky family fun and Halloween Festivities on 7th Street!

The Bloomsburg YMCA will host their annual “Trunk or Treat” in their parking lot – there will fun activities, a haunted walk-through, and of course, lots of Halloween candy! The Children’s Museum will offer family crafts and activities, and The Exchange will oversee a costume contest for kids up to 12 years old. BTE’s make-up experts will apply movie-quality blood and wounds to kids wishing to look realistically scary, and Ramona Schaffer will do face-painting for all kids. AGAPE will host marshmallow and hot dog roasting as well as pumpkin painting with their S.M.I.L.E. group. For the fourth year, help us count down to the smashingly fun pumpkin drop –- thanks to the Bloomsburg Fire Department for their cooperation.

Through these organizations’ generosity, families will enjoy all of the fun absolutely free! Of course, they all count on generosity throughout the year: Only through contributions of time and money from people throughout our community do these non-profits survive and thrive.

Families may park at the former Bloom Mills site on Market Street between 6th Street and the railroad, courtesy of its owner, the Columbia County Housing Corporation.

Trick-or-treating throughout Bloomsburg’s residential districts will happen on Tuesday, October 31st.
