Little Italy’s FESTA! isn’t the only thing San Diegans look forward to in October! One of our other most loved events takes place at the end of the month — “Trick or Treat on India Street.”

When the sun starts to set, Little Italy will transform into a Halloween extravaganza with pumpkins, balloons and scarecrows galore on Friday, Oct. 28 for the spooktacular 10th annual Trick-or-Treat on India Street!

Little ones dressed as their favorite superhero, cartoon, princess, animal and anything else imaginable can come and fills the streets of the neighborhood and enjoy this fun and safe Halloween event from 5:30–7:30 p.m.

Trick or Treat on India Street makes it possible for urban families to enjoy traditional trick-or-treating fun by Little Italy businesses along historic India Street opening their doors to give out candy and Halloween treats.

Families are encouraged to bring their little monsters out in costume attire and join in on the trick-or-treating fun.

Creating an authentic trick-or-treat experience for urban families in the neighborhood each year is important to the Little Italy Association. The group is dedicated to making the evening magical for the community with Little Italy Trick-or-Treat bags, Halloween décor and festive photo opps for families. Trick-or-Treat on India Street allows kids to still go door-to door and pick up Halloween treats, while passing other families along the way — giving everyone the chance to catch all the new costumes for the year.

This is an event you don’t want to miss out on!
