There are several places you can take your little ghosts or goblins for safe trick or treating this week.
This Halloween, the Outlets at Legends invites parents and kids to spend the evening trick or treating throughout the outlet.
In addition to the traditional candy and costumes, Legends will have free bounce houses and face painting for the kids. Come prepared for a night of fun with trick or treat bag in hand, costumes are required, but please no masks.
An alternative to a neighborhood trick or treat, parents and grandparents can enjoy the holiday while keeping the kids in sight. The Outlets at Legends will host the event on Wednesday, October 31st, from 5-7p.m.
If it's too cold for comfort, head over to the National Automobile Museum in Downtown Reno. Kids get to collect candy, and the whole family can check out more than 200 cars from the 20th century.
The event starts at 4:30 and goes until 7:30 Halloween night.
Admission is $2 per person.
Nevada Humane Society offers safe, indoor trick-or-treating that will be lots of Halloween fun. There will be spooky decorations, animals and staff in costume, and lots of yummy candy for children in costume. Children can trick-or-treat through the shelter from 4:00 – 7:00pm on Wednesday, October 31, picking up candy from staff and love vibes from the many dogs and cats.
You can even visit with four-legged ghosts and goblins in costume—maybe even take one home! Throughout October, you can adopt an adult cat or dog for the price you choose. All pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
Nevada Humane Society is open for pet adoption seven days a week Sunday through Friday from 11:0am – 6:30pm and on Saturday from 10:00am – 6:30pm. The shelter is located at 2825 Longley Lane in Reno. For more information on adopting a pet, please call 775-856-2000, ext. 302 or visit online at nevadahumanesociety.org.
Family Eyecare, in partnership with the Reno Host Lions Club, is sponsoring the Northern Nevada Trick-or-Treat for Sight Night that will take place on October 31st.
Children are being encouraged to collect used pairs of eyeglasses as they go about their regular trick-or-treating activities. They can then drop the glasses off at Cochrane Family Eyecare, who will then forward them on to the Reno Host Lions Club. For every ten pairs of used glasses that a child brings in, he or she will receive a free pair of non-prescription children's sunglasses as a thank you gift.
In order to make collecting the used eyewear easier, children are encouraged to leave a note on their neighbor's doors a few days before Halloween, explaining the event and asking the neighbors to have their glasses ready for pickup during trick-or-treating hours. A flyer can be printed from www.CochraneFamilyEyecare.com, or children can create their own.
Hope Community Church is holding its annual 'Trunk or Treat' event at Comstock Park in Double Diamond from 5pm-7pm. Kids can travel from vehicle-to-vehicle playing games and filling their bags with candy. They will have over 150 pounds of candy to give out!
