From their storefronts, businesses in the Proctor District hand out candy to participants between 4:00pm and 6:00pm. Each participating business expects to hand out 1500-2000 treats during this event!
The road closures begin at 3:00pm and should be expected to remain closed until 7:00pm. Barricades will be removed after 6:00pm and as safely as possible around pedestrian traffic. Closing the road during this event is required for the greatest public safety. Every effort is made toward the safety of participants and the public.

The History:
For almost 100 years, Tacomans have come together on the streets of Proctor where local businesses and schools hosted events, parades and parties for the community. The Proctor Business Association proudly continues this cherished tradition.

On October 31st, a trick-or-treating parade of ghosts, goblins, giggles and gore would dance through the
district. A celebration of our community, our artistic individuality and Tacoma’s rich history.

Since the 1920s, Proctor has been the host for “Safe & Sane” Halloween events. First organized by the
“26th & Proctor Men’s Club”, a costume procession with the American Legion Drum and Bugle Corps
would travel through the streets of Proctor, ending at Mason School for a community bonfire. Thousands
of children would attend and the Tacoma School with the most participants received the “Attendance Trophy Cup”.

It appears, Tacomans of all ages have shown a great enthusiasm for costume, especially when prizes were involved. Best character impersonations and comic costumes could win trophies, treats, and in 1934 even a live turkey!

This year’s event takes place on North Proctor between N. 25th and N. 28th Streets & N. 26th Street between Adams and Madison Streets. From their storefronts, businesses in the Proctor District hand out candy to participants between 4:00pm and 6:00pm. Halloween Day. Each participating business expects to hand out 1500-2000 treats during this event!

The road closures begin at 3:00pm and should be expected to remain closed until 7:00pm. Barricades will be removed after 6:00pm and as safely as possible around pedestrian traffic. Closing the road during this event is required for the greatest public safety. Every effort is made toward the safety of participants and the public.

Proctor Treats is a long-established event. It captures the heart & soul of North Tacoma as we embrace our creative identities, welcome new neighbors and connect with our community. It is also an opportunity for Proctor small businesses to give thanks to all who support us. On behalf of the Proctor District Association, we look forward to seeing you again this year.
