Stop by Broadway Square on Halloween and enjoy spooky activities! Don't be scared, this is a family-friendly event, so come by for an afternoon full of Halloween activities.

Square Scare Activities

Purchase a fresh, locally grown pumpkin for a small fee and paint it as you wish or according to some provided themes. Enter your pumpkin into the Painted Pumpkin Contest for a chance at winning a prize! Painted pumpkins are judged at the end of the event and prizes are awarded.

Bring your spooky or stylish pre-carved pumpkin to The Square to be displayed in the Carved Pumpkin Contest. Submit your carved pumpkin by 3:00 pm.

Make sure to check out all the pumpkins and vote for your favorite ones. Awards are given out at the end of the event.

Put on your best Halloween costume and participate in Broadway Square's first-annual Square Scare Costume Parade! 

The Costume Parade starts at 3:00 pm, with a parade around The Square. Gather to watch the parade, cheer on participants' creativity and vote on your favorite costumes. Costume awards are announced at the end of Square Scare, including Best Overall Costume, Spookiest Costume and more to be announced.

Costume Award Divisions include kids (12 and under) and adults (ages 13+).

A Festive Photo Spot with a painted pumpkin backdrop, hay bales and more are available for event attendees to capture a Halloween (or fall) photo to share with friends and family. (Don't forget to use #FargoBroadwaySquare so we see it, too!)

The Festive Photo Spot is also the final moment of the Costume parade and each contestant is welcome to get a photo taken to document this year's Halloween costume.

A collection of Downtown Fargo businesses are gathering at Square Scare, providing information on their business/organization and handing out candy or healthy food items to trick-or-treating event attendees.

Are you a local business interested in participating? Learn more and fill out a form.

Broadway Square has fresh, locally grown pumpkins available for purchase. Attendees are invited to purchase a pumpkin and hire our skilled, local pumpkin carver to create a masterpiece pumpkin that will decorate your house this Halloween.

More details coming soon.
