FLORENCE, AL – The third Pawloween event, sponsored by the Town and Gown Task Force on behalf of the City of Florence and the University of North Alabama, is set for Saturday, Oct. 29, from 10 a.m. until noon in downtown Florence.

“We are thrilled to have the return of this event in downtown,” said Florence Mayor Andy Betterton. “Pawloween is a great opportunity to enjoy a little trunk-or-treating as well as to get to know some of the city departments and University organizations and the people behind those entities in the process.”

In its third year, Pawloween was started in 2020 as a way to provide a safe, distanced trick-or-treating event for the community during the Covid-19 pandemic. Since then, it has become an annual Halloween event that attracts hundreds of families to the downtown.

“The University and the City of Florence have long enjoyed a robust and vital relationship that helps both entities prosper,” said UNA President Dr. Ken Kitts. “Pawloween has become a part of that relationship as well as a beloved tradition.” 

Pawloween is open to Florence-based businesses, and they can request to participate by emailing The banquet halls of the Guillot University Center will serve as the rain location.
