Halloween fun is upon us once again.  Join us on Tuesday October 30, 2018 from 5pm-8pm for our second annual Halloween Party and costume contest. It will be a Spooktacular night of TRUNK-or-treating, games, face painting, hotdogs, candy, and more.  Costume contest winners will receive special prizes, but additional toys and candy will be given out all night long! Bring your family out to spend some time with our family and enjoy all the fun.


When out and about trick-or-treating on Halloween night don’t forget these helpful safety tips from the American Society of Pediatrics:


  • A responsible adult should accompany young children on the neighborhood rounds
  • If your older children are going alone, plan and review a route acceptable to you
  • Agree on a specific time children should return home
  • Teach your children never to enter a stranger's home or car
  • Instruct children to travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and stick with their friends
  • Tell your children not to eat any treats until they return home
  • All costumes, wigs and accessories should be fire-resistant
  • Avoid masks, which can obstruct vision
  • If children are allowed out after dark, fasten reflective tape to their costumes and bags, or give them glow sticks
  • When buying Halloween makeup, make sure it is nontoxic and always test it in a small area first
  • Remove all makeup before children go to bed to prevent skin and eye irritation


For motorist:


  • Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs
  • Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully
  • At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing
  • Discourage new, inexperienced drivers from driving on Halloween


Have a safe and happy Halloween from all of us at Town East Ford!
