Trick or Treat in the Heat

August 30, 2013
Every year I look forward to ‘Trick or Treat in the Heat’ in my neighborhood. I love to see all the kids happy and dressed up and my Muirwood neighbors really go all out to make sure it’s a safe and super fun environment.
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 the kids here (and their parents)!   By holding it in early September, the kids get to wear their costumes without cold weather gear.
This event started in September of 2005 as an impromptu block event to allow a terminally-ill boy (Ian Robbins) experience his last Halloween. It was so much fun that the neighborhood decided to do it every year in celebration of Ian and is now a highly-anticipated neighborhood-wide party and charity fundraiser. 100% of the proceeds are split between the three charities (Hospice of Anchorage, Make a Wish, and Ronald McDonald House).
I love this event! And it is coming up soon; Sunday, September 8th!
