Trick or Treat in the Heat is coming on Sunday, September 11, 2016
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.
What Is TOTITH?
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.
We are still finalizing the neighborhood lineup for 2016, but so far we have confirmations from:
- Kincaid (Muirwood Park and Westpark)
- Eagle River
Additional neighborhoods will be added to this list through July. We are looking for volunteers to help get an event going in their neighborhood, particularly in:
- East Anchorage
- Locations on the Kenai Peninsula
Please call 907-245-2602 if you would like to find out more.
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!
