Trick-or-Treat Times in Shorewood

Children will stroll the sidewalks of Shorewood Sunday Oct. 28, and other North Shore communities, in search of treats.

Goblins and ghouls, princesses, fairies and superheroes will stroll the streets of Shorewood on Sunday, Oct. 28, looking for sweet treats during the annual Halloween trick-or-treat.

Trick-or-treating will take place from 2 to 4 p.m.

Over in Whitefish Bay, the tykes will hit the streets from 4 to 6 p.m. on Oct. 28. Fox Point will trick-or-treat from 1 to 4 p.m., and Bayside from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

And before you send your little ones to collect their goodies, here are some trick-or-treating safety guidelines from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration:

  • Wear costumes made of fire-retardant materials; look for “flame resistant” on the label.
  • Wear bright, reflective costumes or add strips of reflective tape so you’ll be more visible.
  • Wear makeup and hats rather than masks that can obscure your vision.
  • Test the makeup you plan to use by putting a small amount on the arm of the person who will be wearing it a couple of days in advance. If a rash, redness, swelling, or other signs of irritation develop where the makeup was applied, that's a sign of a possible allergy.
  • Check FDA’s list of color additives to see if makeup additives are FDA approved. If they aren’t approved for their intended use, don’t use it.
  • Don’t wear decorative contact lenses unless you have seen an eye care professional and gotten a proper lens fitting and instructions for using the lenses.
  • Don’t eat candy until it has been inspected at home.
  • Trick-or-treaters should eat a snack before heading out, so they won’t be tempted to nibble on treats that haven’t been inspected.
  • Tell children not to accept—or eat—anything that isn’t commercially wrapped.

Here are some more Halloween tips from the FDA, and here are a few more from the Mayo Clinic.

I love it when hordes of kids dressed as NBA players jump out of their vans and raid my neighborhood.

At least your 'hoards' make the attempt to dress up. I think that many of them just use trick or treating as a justification to ask for free candy. I don't mind giving candy to those that cross the river to trick or treat, but they should at least try to wear a costume. I'm sending all the 'trick or treat for the baby' people over to Lyle's house...
Question "Mark" October 13, 2012 at 04:28 PM
Mark Clingaman (Free Shorewood) says..."I would like to see a few of you apologize for the way you treat people who don't conform to your beliefs." Now if that isn't the pot calling the kettle black...lmao. So many of your posts personally attack people, programs, and organizations. If you are not happy with Shorewood then do us all a favor and LEAVE Shorewood!

if you don't want to participate in Halloween don't answer the door when the trick or treaters come. Problem solved. The rest of the conversation - SEED, school report card meaning and information, is a conversation that should be had, like adults, somewhere else. if you want to see the Shorewood report card, or any public school's report card they are posted on the dpi website - be prepared to do some studying to understand what you're seeing, it's a fairly complicated report. or look at the big number and walk away - some will - and miss the real story in the details.

I agree with CowDung--we can also send all those who have a sick brother, sister, child at home and want something for them. I like the neightborhood trick or treat better--it's more fun when you know the kids. A lot of our trick or treaters today(over 400) were not celebrating or in costume--it's just a way to get free candy.
