KNOXVILLE, TN — Knoxville Center invites families to celebrate Halloween in a safe, climate-controlled environment during the annual Mall-O-Ween celebration! This year’s festivities will take place Friday, October 31 beginning at 5 p.m.

From ghosts and goblins to princesses and pirates, children are invited to dress up in their costumes and trick-or-treat at participating retailers throughout the mall. They can also join HOT 104.5 to compete in a “Hot-O-Ween” costume contest. Registration begins at 5 p.m., with the contest starting at 6 p.m.

“Mall-O-Ween is one of our most popular events,” said Abbey Harris, director of marketing and business development. “It’s a great alternative to traditional trick-or-treating, and we’re proud to be able to provide families with a fun, safe way to enjoy Halloween.”

Please note that this event is exclusive to Knoxville Center and will NOT be held at West Town Mall. Only children 12 and under are permitted to trick-or-treat or wear masks. No toy weapons are allowed, and costumes may only be worn during event hours. For more information on this and other Knoxville Center events, visit
