The merchants of downtown invite Walla Walla’s goblins, superheroes, firemen and fairies (and their parents) to visit door-to-door each Halloween. Although Main Street is closed to vehicle movement, volunteers help families cross the intersection at Second & Main and assist at some stores to hand out candy. Palouse to Third, hand out candies and treats to the children in costumes. It is estimated that between 2,000 to 4,000 children and their parents visit downtown for this annual event.
