Between 800 and 900 kids, decked out in full costume, are expected to converge on Buffalo's downtown businesses to trick-or-treat during the annual Monster March this Halloween afternoon.

The event is organized by the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce, with most businesses in town setting up on the sidewalks to hand out candy, trinkets and other goodies to the hordes of goblins, princesses and superheroes in town to celebrate Halloween.

Chamber Director Angela Jarvis explains more about how and why the Monster March began.

Kids should line up at the Jim Gatchell Museum before 4 o'clock, when the March will begin and wind through the museum and county courthouse, then south along Main Street to Angus, cross Main Street and continue north to end at the chamber.

Main Street will be closed from Fort to Angus Streets for the kids' safety during the March.

The event is free for all to enjoy.
