Come join the fun at the 4th Annual Beggar's Night, where the Early American Crafters transform Heritage Canyon into a world of ghosts and goblins to delight the young trick-or-treaters.

The Early American Crafters strive to make the trick-or-treat event a safe environment for the young and very young to enjoy. Adults, as well as the children, are encouraged to wear their finest Halloween costumes.

This event is also a great spectator event where adults may come early, bring a chair and set and watch the children in their costumes pass by.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 20, 2012, starting at 4:00pm and ending at 8:00pm. The Canyon will be lit up with lanterns and candles, but we suggest that you bring a flashlight to help light your way as you trick-or-treat from building to building.

There is no admission charge for this event, but donations are gratefully excepted and help plan next year's events.
