Trick of Treat Street

Newberg Downtowns Halloween Trick-Treat-StreetFor many years, First Street in downtown Newberg has transformed into Trick or Treat Street with merchants handing out treats to costume-clad children. In 2010, the Coalition coordinated the event which attracted thousands of kids and parents for the largest downtown event of the year. Read about the huge turnout for 2010 Halloween in the Newberg Graphic.
