Costumed visitors attend at a Halloween event, Sunday, Oct. 29, 2023, in Auburn, Maine. The event helped bring some healing to a community still grieving in the wake of mass shootings that killed 18 people Wednesday night in Lewiston, Maine.

Bates College and the city of Lewiston are hosting a trick or treat event from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Trick or treaters must be accompanied by an adult. Costumes are encouraged, as is a bag for candy. The festivities will begin at Frye Street and White Street before moving over to the Bates main campus.

Organizers say they believe the event will be a positive family event for the community.
