For the October Friday in the ‘Fonte festivities, we’re celebrating Fright Night in the ‘Fonte! Dare to come downtown. You might get tricked. You might get a treat!

This adults’ night of fright begins with trick-or-treating throughout downtown Bellefonte. Make a purchase at participating downtown Bellefonte businesses during Friday in the ‘Fonte, and you’ll receive a tote-bag to fill will candy. Adults wearing a costume will be judged by Bellefonte business owners, and given a sticker if they have what the business owner considers to be the best. At the end of the night, the participant with the MOST stickers will win a special prize!

Following trick-or-treating, meet us at Bella Vino Wine Bar for a celebration.
