Trick or treat!
Isn’t Halloween fun? Your get an excuse to wear crazy makeup and eat all the candy you want totally guilt-free. That is, until you wake up the next morning with fake blood on your pillow and a massive sugar hangover. We’ll pre-order a detox facial and a green smoothie, please!
In case you couldn’t tell, we couldn’t be more excited about Halloween. It’s always so much fun to get dressed up and see all the kiddos decked out in their costumes. The best part about Halloween is that it seems like Summit County gets more and more into the festivities with each passing year. Our neighbors have definitely stepped up their game with the spooky decorations, theme parties and jack-o-lanterns grinning from their front steps.
Before you gear up for a memorable night of trick-or-treating in Summit County, review our tips for where to go and how to stay warm.
1. Trick-or-Treat in Breckenridge. The Breckenridge Police Department closes off vehicle traffic to High Street and Harris Street during trick-or-treat hours to make it easy to meet up with your neighbors and load up on candy. Official Breckenridge trick-or-treat hours are 6pm – 8pm on October 31st.
2. Trick-or-Treat in Frisco. Frisco Main Street will be closed to vehicle traffic from 5:30pm – 8:30pm on Halloween to allow for safe trick-or-treating. Jack-o-lanterns hanging outside Main Street businesses will point out the shops handing out candy. Official Frisco trick-or-treat hours are 6pm – 8pm.
3. Trick-or-Treat in Wellington. Though most Breckenridge kids flock to High and Harris, the Wellington neighborhood also hosts trick-or-treating. Some houses even serve chili and spiked hot cider to the adults. For this reason alone, Wellington is a must-do especially if it’s a cold night!
4. Bundle up. The forecast calls for temperatures near freezing on Halloween night. Luckily, it is possible to stay warm and look awesome in your costume. Incorporate a cloak or cape into your get-up, or wear layers underneath. Think sweaters, a skin-colored unitard, leggings and gloves.
5. Stay visible. A black costume on a dark night makes you invisible to cars on the road. Stay safe by applying reflective tape to your child’s costume and carry a flashlight or glowstick to light your path. You can even pretend it’s a light saber if you really want to!
6. Bring candy along on your route. We know it sounds crazy to bring a bag of candy trick-or-treating when your kids are collecting enough of their own. However, allowing them to snack on candy from your own stash will prevent them from eating their loot before you’ve been able to inspect it.
