Annual Trick-Or-Treating
Fairhaven’s annual community event features goblins, ghosts, and ghouls of all sizes and ages roaming the streets of Fairhaven’s Historic District on the hunt for treats.

Local participating shops in Fairhaven will be decked out for the holiday and those with posted notices will be handing out candy.

Halloween photo-taking will continue in honor of community pharmacist Gordy Tweit who began the tradition more than 50 years ago at this beloved annual event. Photos will be taken throughout the event from 3 – 6pm by Oh! Snap in Finnegan’s Alley Atrium across Harris Avenue from the old pharmacy building and will be printed immediately for parents at no cost.
