Broadmead Village also hosts its seventh annual Haunted Broadmead Village on Wednesday, Oct. from 3 to 5:30 p.m.

Trick-or-treaters can visit stores identified by a Haunted Broadmead Village poster in the store window. Many of the stores owners and employees will be dressed up to celebrate the occasion.
