This is one of the premiere trick-or-treating locations in the Cache Valley. On Halloween, Harrison Boulevard has been closed historically to car traffic to make the streets safer for the little ghouls. “Halloween on Harrison” has an estimated 6,000 visitors while taking in the extravagant homes and generous treats.
