Halloween Trick-or-Treating & Photos
During this annual event in Fairhaven, join all sorts of small (and not-so-small—yes, all ages in costume welcome!) goblins, princesses, wizards, heroes, animals—and undoubtedly some unidentified creatures—on the streets of Fairhaven's Historic District.
Shops in Fairhaven will be decorated for the holiday as families parade around, and there will be treats at most of the merchants (look for the poster at participating locations).
Annual Halloween photos: Even though Fairhaven Pharmacy closed its doors after 126 years October 20, 2015, the half-century tradition of photos being taken of costumed children each Halloween continues!
Pharmacist Gordy Tweit began providing this service to the community over 50 years ago, and it was continued by Rob Johansen and the folks of Fairhaven Pharmacy until 2015, when the Historic Fairhaven Association took over the tradition by engaging a professional photographer to snap photos-- even using Gordy's backdrop curtain, which he generously passed on last year.
Photos will be taken by Oh! Snap in Finnegan's Alley Atrium across Harris Avenue from the old pharmacy building; they will be printed immediately and given to parents--for free. Times for photos will be the same at the district trick-or-treating (3-6pm), so there will of course be a treat for the little ones.
