Safe Trick or Treating in San Diego


For the list of 2015 Safe Trick or Treating click here.

Halloween is just next week, do you have a tradition?  Do you trick or treat only in your neighborhood?  I love the idea of trick or treating at a shopping center or mall because there are not cars everywhere.  I am always worried about children on Halloween and being struck by a car, this almost happened to us last year!  The driver of the car got an ear full from myself and the other parents with us.  So this year we will be trick or treating at one of the events listed below.  Of course my child and probably yours too LOVES Halloween because of the candy, which is another reason I love this, I know who the candy is coming from.  Happy Halloween!
