Many parents no longer send children out into the neighborhoods to participate in trick-or-treating on Halloween. Families choose to have a great Halloween party in their home with friends and family, or participate in safe trick-or-treating activities that are sponsored by community organizations. many churches also sponsor safe trick-or-treating for children in the community. Malls in the community often sponsor safe trick-or-treating by having the children visit merchants in the mall to receive treats. Parents always have the opportunity to have treats x-rayed for safety at the mall events.
Sarasota has several safe trick-or-treating activities planned for October. One of the events in the Photo List has a cost of $4 per child. One of the trick-or-treating events that is sponsored by an organization in the community is giving trick-or-treaters the opportunity to give back to the community by offering free admission to families who bring food items to the event that will be donated to a local food bank for the holidays. Trick-or-treaters are invited to dress in costumes for each event in the Photo List.
Check out the Photo List to give your children a safe and fun trick-or-treating for Halloween this year.
