Tahoe’s trick-or-treating: Where to take the kids on Halloween
While a majority of the adult Halloween parties take place over the weekend, a handful of local organizations will come together and host trick-or-treating events featuring fun for the whole family on Tuesday, Oct. 31.
Unsure of where to take the kids this Halloween? Check out the following suggestions for safe, family-friendly festivities to celebrate the spookiest day of the year.
The 15th annual event returns to Lake Tahoe Community College’s physical education building on Tuesday, Oct. 31. Guests who have attended in the past will recognize the festive format, which includes indoor trick-or-treating, games, music, a mad scientist laboratory, haunted house, fortune teller and additional surprises. Attendees can also look forward to pizza, s’mores, cotton candy and other sweet treats.
Treat Street is free, open to the public and held from 5 – 8 p.m. Dress warmly (and in costume) to make the most of the evening, which is sponsored by KRLT 93.9, KOWL 1490 and Tahoe Chamber. Learn more online at http://www.ltcc.edu.
Halloween Carnival Celebration
Kahle Community Center’s annual Halloween Carnival Celebration begins at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31. Featuring carnival games and — of course — treats, the event concludes at 6:30 p.m. and is sponsored by Kiwanis of Lake Tahoe.
The Halloween party allows families to “celebrate the spirit of make-believe, a sense of community and ‘spooktacular’ happenings all under one roof,” according to a press release from Kahle Community Center. Call 775-586-7271 for more information.
Trick & Retreat
The Beach Retreat & Lodge allows the community to trick-or-treat throughout the hotel with their families and pets at the annual Trick & Retreat, scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31. Apart from the treats, the evening includes s’mores, live music and family-friendly activities.
While Trick & Retreat is free to attend, food and drinks will be available for purchase, and donations for the Boys & Girls Club of South Lake Tahoe will be accepted. Dreu Murin Productions sponsors the event alongside the nonprofit. Learn more online at http://www.tahoebeachretreat.com.
