  • Check your nearest mall...I know all the malls near us do trick or treating! you can stay out of the rain and keep warm...its also well lit and they give good candy!

  • also check your chamber of commerce website for events normally listed on the calenser, call a few senior homes they usually run trick or treating and also local churches have parties where all are welcome. I live in a small town but they have alot going on and i found out about most of it from the chamber website.

    You can also check your local papers website for other events in your area.

  • Does you town have a website? Local paper? Have you tried asking anyone you know.,neighbors? Police dept. (maybe they might know)

  • "Millsboro Police Department to host Family Night Out, 6-8 p.m. in the Dairy Queen parking lot, Main St., Millsboro. Children 12 and under in costume are invited to collect treats." I guess that's your town's version of trick or treat?

    I found out where you live via your profile. Here's a link to the website I found it on:
