The Candy Crawl in Downtown Lake Charles will not only feature trick-or-treating, but live music, food vendors, and much more.

Portrait of children in Halloween costumes

This is a fun, safe alternative for all residents of SWLA and Lake Charles. Tons of businesses downtown will be handing out candy and the Seven Slot Society of SWLA will be holding a trunk-or-treat.

It's great to see this event make a comeback after a global pandemic and two hurricanes. The Lake and Gator 99.5 were there in 2018 and it was an awesome experience.  My son Elijah was dressed up as a penguin and my daughter Khloe was dressed up as Super Girl. They both came out to help hand out candy and they loved seeing the other costumes and especially handing out candy to kids that were younger than them.  It was a blast.

The Lake Charles Downtown Business Association released a map of the event:
