Manchester University Monster Mash trick or treat is on the Manchester Mall again this year for local children.
It is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28.
If weather moves activities inside the Cordier Auditorium Lobby, all participants will be required to wear a face mask and practice social distancing.
The Monster Mash Haunted Forest is also making a return this year. It is 7:30 to 9:30 in the wooded trails near Schwalm Hall.
Both are free and open to the public. Young children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. The spooky Haunted Forest might be too scary for some children.
Manchester asks community members to bring canned good donations. A donation is not required, and any food collected will go toward feeding those in need.
