Sedona News – This Halloween, Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2023 from 5 to 8 p.m., the Sedona Parks and Recreation Department, Sedona Police Department and Uptown merchants will partner to host trick or treating once again in the Uptown area.
Trick or treaters can expect the same safe and fun community experience this year, with hundreds of families coming out to enjoy this traditional Sedona event. Uptown merchants participating in the event will display “participating merchant” signage and will be well stocked with candy supplies.
