Businesses and nonprofit organizations are invited to participant in the 31st annual Halloween Block Party set for Wednesday, Oct. 31, beginning at 5 p.m.

The Halloween Block Party is a longstanding downtown Cleveland tradition with an average attendance of more than 20,000.

Businesses can showcase their products, sell items and food, and offer treats to thousands of area children.    

“We are excited to celebrate more than three decades of the Halloween Block Party. It’s a fun-filled family event complete with great music, treats and activities for the kids, and delicious food. The booths lining the streets around the Courthouse Square that are set up by various groups and businesses complete the festive atmosphere and bring a feeling of nostalgia to the evening,” said Sharon Marr, executive director of Mainstreet Cleveland.  

Vendor applications are being accepted at the MainStreet Cleveland office through Friday, Oct. 19.
