Where to Trick-or-Treat The best trick-or-treating locations on-Island are Webster’s Estates, Snug Harbour, Vienna Circle and Little Savannah. Be sure to get there early for the best sweets!
When to Celebrate Although trick-or-treating is best done on Halloween itself, most Halloween events take place the weekend before. Check out our events page to be sure you don’t miss out!
Costume Considerations When buying a costume avoid long hems your child could trip over, check the fabric won’t be too hot or irritating and keep it bright so you’ll be able to see your child in the night.
What to Bring It’s a good idea to bring accessories that will help you spot your child easily like a flashlight, glow sticks or reflective tape. Water and a spare bag are also good to have on hand.
Prepare in Advance Check your torch battery, test out your child’s face paint to ensure they don’t have a skin reaction and choose your comfiest shoes.
Have a Heathy Halloween A good meal prior to trick-or-treating will (somewhat!) discourage children from filling up on Halloween treats.
Buddy System For older kids propose a buddy system so you can let them go off independently and still know they will be safe.
