The Oakes Chamber of Commerce hosts the Halloween on Main parade event each Halloween. Area merchants provide a safe and enjoyable trick or treat activity on Main Street. It is a delight for area youth and adults to enjoy each year.


The event is typically held mid-August around the corn harvest and includes a variety of activities through various Oakes Chamber volunteers. The main event is the "Pets in the Park" where young children bring their pets dressed in costume for judging.

The evening´s meal is FREE and sponsored by Oakes Chamber of Commerce

Additional activities include:

Youth Games

Community Train Rides for children

Farmer's Market

Rib Cook Off

Our local merchants move their stores into a holiday design showcase! Their stores are filled with holiday decor, gifts, floral, lights and hardware! One can only set their creative minds in motion for holiday home and business designs after a visit to these stores! They are a must see attraction as part of your "Widows Weekend" event!
