Village staff will guide groups of 50 participants through each activity station, which will include dancing, a juggler, a magician, a costume parade, slime, crafts and trick-or-treating with participating businesses. Each group will remain at activity stations for 5 to 8 minutes (depending on the activity). Each business will get a 10x10 area to set up a table.
