It’s October, which means it’s time to start thinking about your family’s Halloween plans! Halloween falls midweek this year, which means we will all want to get our little ghouls to bed on time. Here are some family-friendly options. Go to one, or hit all three in addition to trick-or-treating in your neighborhood!
The City of Florissant will be hosting their annual Halloween party from 6-8pm at James Eagan Center, for residents of Florissant only. You must present proof of residency at the door. This is an event for families and kids 12 and under. This is a fantastic event, replete with refreshments, games, prizes, and contests, etc. Best of all, it’s free!
First Christian Church will be holding their annual Trunk or Treat on Saturday, October 27, 3-5pm.
Lee-Hamilton School will also be holding their annual Trunk or Treat on Sunday, October 28, 6:30-7:30.
As always, make sure to have pre-determined meeting points and times if you let your kids go trick-or-treating alone. Snopes.com has thoroughly debunked the “poisoned candy” urban myths, but it’s a good idea check your kids’ candy anyway. Make sure that your kids’ costumes are safe. No one wants to be tripping over a too-long costume or have limited visibility.
Lastly, of course, if you are going to participate in a trunk or treat, make sure your car has been serviced! From all of us at Gary’s Auto Service, have a safe and happy Halloween!
