The participating retailers inside The Outlet Collection will offer candy and special treats to trick-or-treaters. And if you’re looking for something fun to do with the young ones, there are additional activities plannes too. You can settle in at the spooky coloring and arts area, or meet your favorite costumed characters from the haunted attraction New Orleans Nightmare. Forget your candy bag? No worries, there are complimentary trick-or-treat bags for your visit, so no sweet will be left behind.
