The Arts Council of Southeast Missouri will host “Trick-Art-Treat” for this month’s First Friday with the Arts on Friday, Oct. 7.

“Trick-Art-Treat” started in 2003 in downtown Cape Girardeau. In 2015, the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri took over the event.

During the 2015 event, they introduced the stamp card which can be picked up at any participating location. Attendees can collect up to seven stamps.

“The larger stamp card events we try and reach out even more to arts across the board. As an arts organization we do feature literary and performing artists. We want to showcase their efforts as well,” said Liz Montgomery, gallery manager of the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri.

Once you have received seven stamps, you have two choices: a free fall or pumpkin beer from Broadway Biergarten or free chips and salsa with the purchase of a drink and entrée from Burritoville.

Start the fall season with a downtown hayride on Broadway, a costume contest at the Arts Council, a “photo-boo-th” and T-shirt printing at Catapult Creative House or live music at the Indie House.

Other events include spooky storytelling, face painting and trick-or-treating.

Bill Bradley and Ken Keller will perform at the Backyard Bash at the Indie House from 6 to 9 p.m.

Along with First Friday with the Arts program, the Rust Center for Media will be open to the public for tours at 325 Broadway from 5 to 7 p.m.

Southeast faculty members Michael Baird and Justin Henry Miller will bring an art exhibition titled “Dark Wonders” to the Arts Council. The exhibition will feature painting, puppetry and and is inspired by science fiction.
