Scare on the Square

After much consideration from the city, sponsors, and local businesses, we will not host the 2020 Scare on the Square this year due to Covid-19. Other regular Halloween activities such as traditional trick or treating will be allowed as usual.

It’s Halloween! Time for monsters, goblins and jack-o-lanterns! Will you “Bee” too scared?

Scare on the Square is a tradition in downtown LaFayette that was started by local businessman, Joe Stock, over 30 years. Now, even though Joe Stock may be gone, the tradition he began lives on.
Scare on the Square is sponsored by the Bank of Lafayette, the City of LaFayette Main Street / Downtown Development Authority, Chappell's and the "Hive".

Local business owners fill the downtown street on Halloween and give out candy to all the children of the community.

This is a safe alternative from going door to door as you & your friends will load up on all the candy you need during Scare on the Square.

Come out dressed in your Halloween costumes and enjoy the fun!


Scare on the Square will be held on Thursday, October 31, 2019, from 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m. The downtown square will be closed to traffic during the event.
