October 30th, 2013: Halloween Events for Kids in Silver City

Hey kids, put on your costumes and check out all the fun events happening in Silver City this Halloween.

Gila Regional Medical Center will have Trick or Treating from 3:30 to 5 pm.  The friendly staff will hand out free goodie bags while supplies last.

There will be Trick or Treating at the Silver City Public Library from 5 to 6 pm.  Show off your costumes and get a treat!

The First United Methodist Church is offering Trunk or Treat in their parking lot as a safe alternative to Trick or Treating from 5:30 to 7 pm.

Sixth Street Elementary will have an All Hallow’s Eve Festival from 6 to 8 pm.  There will be ghostly games, ghoulish food, and a frightful haunted house.  Booth tickets will be available at the door for 25 cents a piece.

Head over to the Door Christian Fellowship Church on Silver Heights Boulevard for a Halloween Festival from 6 to 8:30 pm.  They will have booths, games, prizes, and candy.

For the older spooks out there, ASWNMU Student Government is hosting a haunted house at Eckles Hall behind the tennis courts from 9:45 to midnight.  The cost is $2 for non-WNMU students and Free to WNMU students with a valid student ID.

There will be a Haunted House at Cobre High School on Friday from 7 to 10 pm.  This haunted house is only open to Cobre High School Students.

The Red Cross offers the following safety tips for keeping your little ones safe this Halloween:

  • Look for flame-resistant costumes
  • Plan your Trick or Treat route in advance
  • A parent, guardian, or responsible adult should always accompany young children
  • Make sure your little goblins have a flashlight and add reflective tape to costumes and treat bags
  • Only visit homes with a porch light on
  • Consider using face paint instead of masks, which can inhibit visibility
  • Walk on the sidewalk and look before crossing the street
  • Be cautious around pets


Don’t forget to keep in mind your child’s health and dental hygiene with these helpful tips from the Department of Health:

  • Feed your children something healthy before going trick-or-treating. A good dinner will keep your children from feeling they need to eat all their candy when they get back home.
  • Pick an appropriate-size container to carry their candy. Small buckets or bags prevent pillowcase-sized overkill.
  • Watch out for hard candy that can lead to tooth breakage, or even choking.
  • Freeze surplus candy and keep it out of sight. Ration out no more than a few pieces of candy on a daily basis.
  • Make sure your kids brush their teeth before bed.
