Scare on the Square




The Annual Scare on the Square will return on the Thursday before Halloween! Thursday, October 26, 2023!

The Darlington Area Recreation Department will offer children a downtown Trick-or-Treat experience from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Public Square in Darlington. Employees of area businesses will be handing out treats to costumed children, and some will be dressed in costumes themselves.

Beyond the door-to-door trick-or-treating, booths will line the courthouse grounds for any business, church, or civic club that would like to participate. There will be vendors too.  

The free event provides a safe environment for children to trick-or-treat as well as giving businesses an opportunity to show their community support and open their doors to new potential customers.

The Public Square will be closed to traffic beginning at 4 o'clock for the safety of the children.

If a church, civic club, or business wants to participate, call 843-398-4030.
