Newport Halloween Monster Bash

Mummies and deadies, boos and ghouls! Creep over to Newport for tricks, treats, games, and activities for the whole family! 

Each year downtown Newport crawls with hundreds of witches, vampires, and monsters on Halloween. Main Street businesses and organizations see as many as 750 trick-or-treaters in a few hours! With their support and participation, we have a safe place for our kids to participate in a favorite Halloween tradition.

Costume Contest
Honorary Monster Bash judges will be wandering Main Street looking for the cutest, creepiest, most creative and best group costume at the event. Finalists will be invited to a ghoulish fashion at 2:00PM in the Municipal Gym for a chance to win top honor for the year!/

Trick-or-Treating & Wagon Rides
A group of Monster Merchants on Main Street are excited to haunt with all the ghosts, ghouls and goblins scaring about town for the Monster Bash! During event hours from 1:00-3:00PM, visit any merchant with a "Trick-or-Treat" sign in the window for something sweet, a game or even a Halloween craft! Help support this event by donating to the Halloween Candy Drop.
Hay wagon rides pick-up periodically at the Municipal Building parking lot for free loops around the waterfront during the event.

Halloween Carnival
Following the Ghost Walk costume parade, join us in the Newport Municipal Gym for spooktacular games like Monster Match, Witch Pitch and Give Frank a Heart! Most activities are geared toward children age 3-10, but all are welcome to participate and fill their treat bag with fun prizes. Visit the picture booth for a memorable keepsake photo opportunity with our local photographer and keep an eyeball out for hilarious family contests like the doughnut on a string competition or parent-child mummy challenge! 

Haunted Halls
For the younger crowd, check out the Haunted Hallways of CCV on the ground floor of the Emory Hebard State Building from 11:00-1:00PM. Move from classroom to classroom and with a knock on the door, you'll find a different surprise every time! Community College of Vermont is providing free snacks, candy and hot apple cider, coloring activities for the kids and plenty of boo-tiful jack-o-lanterns! This year CCV will be bringing back the SCARY EXIT for people 10 yrs & older.
