Law Enforcement Agencies + Community Organizations Hosting Safe Trick or Treating Event in Evansville
Halloween is almost here and that means one thing and one thing only - trick-or-treating! You can join several area law enforcement agencies and local community organizations for a safe and fun trick-or-treating experience.
In The "Olden Days" of Trick-or-Treating
This may date me a bit, but when I was a kid, we would get geared up in our Halloween costumes, grab our treat bags and orange plastic pumpkin pails, and head off down the street, going door to door, visiting all of the neighbors in hopes of filling our bags full of candy. Of course, our families knew almost all of the other families on the street back then. Or maybe our parents just didn't worry as much as we do now...
Things Change - And So Has Trick-or-Treating
It seems nowadays, with the age of technology and social media meant to connect us and bring us together, it has instead brought us further apart with many of us not knowing who our neighbors even are. It makes it a little harder to feel comfortable when we're sending our kids up to knock on a stranger's door to ask for candy. Fortunately, we live in a community that is full of fun, family-friendly Halloween events so our kids can still enjoy dressing up and collecting candy while staying safe.
