Ghosts, princesses, superheroes and more filled a 10-block stretch of 23rd Street in Richmond on Oct. 31 for Trick or Treat on 23rd Street. Nearly 40 businesses between Barrett and McBryde avenues participated in the event, handing out candy to children and adults alike in costume.
The Oct. 31 event was the first of its kind in Richmond, said event volunteer and local artist Holly Carter.
The Trick or Treat on 23rd Street was not only “a safe thing for kids to do,” it also got “the merchants involved as well,” Carter said.
The event was hosted by 23rd Street Revitalization, an initiative focused on developing and engaging businesses along the 23rd Street corridor in Richmond.
