Central Ohio Halloween

by Maureen McCabe on October 25, 2007

Beggar’s night (trick or treat) is on Halloween this year…

In the City of Columbus – Trick or Treat 2007 and many of the suburbs, Dublin, Powell, Westerville, Worthington.

A couple of years ago the Columbus Dispatch said of the history of Beggar’s Night in Columbus:

“Beggars Night, which could fall as many as four days before Halloween, was started in Columbus at least 90 years ago, originally because a Downtown community party was held on Oct. 31. But the party got too rowdy, according to newspaper accounts, and Columbus police halted it in 1954.”

Channel 10 has a list of many Central Ohio Communities!

Halloween in Central Ohio is not just for little kids! Although the website says “Boys and Ghouls” the website and the real live site are definitely not for young children… or mature adults who don’t enjoy gore. Dead AcresHaunted Hoochie is scary.

It is one of the top 10 haunted houses in the US.
