Trick or Treat in the Heat is coming on Sunday, September 13, 2015

Note–the event this year will run one hour earlier than it has in past years.  There will be an optional kickoff party for each neighborhood running from 4:30-5:00PM, with door-to-door trick or treating from 5:00-7:00PM.


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 has grown every year, and in 2015 will consist of seven separate events, spanning eight neighborhoods (the Kincaid event takes place in two adjacent neighborhoods–Muirwood Park and Westpark).

How to Participate

Wristbands are sold for $10 apiece before the event, which serve as the child’s admission ticket (note, adults do not require wristbands unless they are collecting candy too!)  100% of the proceeds from these wristbands are donated to the charities (volunteers absorb any operating costs).  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!
