With Halloween creeping up right around the corner, and the holiday landing on a Saturday, there will be endless possibilities to spend time with your little vampires and zombies all weekend long. If you have little monsters who you'll be taking trick-or- treating then you should check out one of the local Safe Trick-or-Treat events that will be taking place around the Island!
 
If  you are concerned about your child going out trick-or-treating this year, don't fear. There are multiple events you and  your young ones can attend that will be in supervised and secure places such as in local schools, museums, churches, community centers, parks, and other local venues.
 
By attending safe trick-or-treating events you will ensure that your little ghosts and goblins are safe this Halloween season. Safe trick-or-treat events are ideal for children who are not old enough to go trick-or-treating by themselves but don't want to miss out on all the spooky fun and sweet treats! These kid-friendly events are often run by local community organizations that want to provide safe environments for children in the community.
