October 28th - Uptown Rock Falls



Rock Falls Uptown Businesses offer a safe fun way to fill up your young one's candy there are lots of tricks and treats for adults along the way. 

Games, activities, and festive fun, all in a safe environment.  Our local businesses invite you and your family to join us for the Uptown Trick - or - Treat on October 28th. Rock Falls students have a half-day - and longer trick-or-treating times means easier social distancing.

Booths will be located in the Farmer's Market Parking lot on the corner of W. 2nd Street and 4th Ave.

Look for signs in the windows of Uptown businesses!
