Did someone say Treat?

The Courtyard Shoppes hosted a small event called "Trick or Treat at 200 First Street", that over the past decade or so evolved into the Annual "Beaches Town Center Fall Festival and Costume Parade". It's hard to believe it's been almost 15 years! Many of the children in costumes those early years grew up to volunteer and make this event a success! For photos from previous years: follow link  or  see here too

The locally owned businesses here have donated prizes, samples, candy and more to make this a FREE event open to all ages. It's events like this that make Beaches Town Center more than just a shopping and dining destination...it creates a community!

Join The Girls at Jaffi’s Thursday, October 19th from 5pm–8pm for sips, snacks and shopping—all for a good cause!

Enjoy the hottest in fall fashions, fun from Carrie Wilson Makeup and Ten Salon, plus snacking goodness from Taco Lu. A portion of all proceeds from the event will go to benefit The DONNA Foundation—perfect for getting pink’d out for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
