Looking for a safe alternative to taking your little monsters Trick-or-Treating this year?  Here are a couple of options you may want to consider:

On Friday from 9 am to 1 pm, A Better Chimney will be having a Trick-or-Treat in the store.  There will be candy for the kiddos, so Trick-or-Treat where it’s nice and warm.

Or, you can Trick-or-Treat at your Library this Halloween.  Get started on your Halloween night with a gift bag and goodies from 3 to 5 pm on Friday from the Silver City Public Library.  Trick-or-Treaters of all ages are welcome.

Bring your Goblin to Trick-or-Treat at Gila Regional Medical Center on Friday from 3:30 to 5 pm.  Kids will receive a free Halloween goodie bag while supplies last.

Trailer-or-Treat on Friday from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at Silver Trailer, # 2 Caballero Road by the Southwest Horseman’s Arena.  This event is free to the public, and there will be candy for the kids who come by and get it.

A Harvest/Halloween Festival from 6 to 9 pm at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 1301 North Swan.  There will be Halloween games for all ages, including cake-walk, carved pumpkin contest, costume judging, and Trick-or-Treat.
