Trick or Treat in the Heat has been cancelled for 2020 and 2021.
Although a beloved fundraiser for extremely worthy organizations, promoting a large gathering event at this time is unnecessarily risky. Given the nature of TOTITH (occurring on public streets, with free-range movement through neighborhoods, and uncontrolled entry/exit walking patterns), we do not feel it is possible to provide sufficient public health safeguards to adequately protect participating children, accompanying parents, and residents passing out candy, given the stubborn growth in the number of COVID-19 cases.
Thank you so very much for your support of past events, and we hope that TOTITH will return better than ever in 2022!


Trick or Treat in the Heat (TOTITH) is a neighborhood-wide early Halloween celebration.  Anyone who has experienced Trick or Treat with late October Alaskan weather knows what a borderline miserable experience it can be for our kids here (and their parents)!   By holding it in early September, the kids get to wear their costumes without cold weather gear.

TOTITH events typically are held in early September, the Sunday after Labor Day.  For most neighborhoods, there will be an optional kickoff party running from 4:30-5:00PM, with door-to-door trick or treating from 5:00-7:00PM.

Please call 907-245-2602 if you would like to find out more.

How to Participate

Wristbands are sold  before the event, which serve as the child’s admission ticket (note, adults do not require wristbands unless they are collecting candy too!)  Net proceeds from these wristbands are donated to the charities.  We also accept additional donations on behalf of the charities before and during the event.  In order to avoid overwhelming the host neighborhoods, the number of wristbands is limited, so purchase yours beforehand in order to guarantee a slot for your child. We often sell out of wristbands before the event, so PLEASE don’t wait until the last minute to get yours!
