Home Newsroom 278. Halloween 2013 Trick or Treat Photo Contest

We’re kicking off a quick and easy Halloween photo contest for today’s NoonDaily update. We’ve lined up three prizes for three winners and entering is as easy as submitting a favorite photo of your trick or treaters in their Halloween costumes this year. Here’s one of mine, all dressed up for preschool this morning.

Happy Halloween!
Happy Halloween!

We’re preparing for about 1,000 trick or treaters who will descend on our home in costume this afternoon.  There are literally trick-or-treater traffic jams on our street in the Village of Barrington starting at the stroke of 3 p.m., when trick-or-treat hours begin up until the candy rush ends at 7.  There are usually kids at the door from start to finish so hopefully the rain stays away!

Trick or Treat Hours from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on October 31, 2013 in the Village of Barrington

For our contest, we have gift certificates from the SweetSpot Candy Shop, Blue Cherry Frozen Yogurt and Cooper’s Pizza to give away to THREE WINNERS.

To enter, all you have to do is submit a photo of your favorite trick-or-treaters below by the end of the day tomorrow, Friday, November 1st.  We’ll draw the names of three winners and share our photo entries this weekend right here at 365Barrington.com.

And it never hurts to review those helpful tips offered by the Village of Barrington to keep our kids safe this Halloween.

Halloween Safety Tips

Use face paint instead of masks to ensure your children • can see well, and provide them with lights or reflective tape to ensure that they can be seen by others.

Instruct your children to approach only those homes that are well-lit and never to enter a stranger’s home.

Instruct your children to eat nothing until they come home and the treats have been inspected by you.

Instruct your children to travel only in familiar areas and along an established route.

Do not light your pumpkin with a candle; instead use a flashlight or cold chemical lightstick.

Autumn leaves, dry corn stalks, berry branches, similar fall decorations, and even some Halloween costumes can be hazardous. Keep lighted bulbs, open fires, and even adult smoking materials at a safe distance.

As always, notify the police department of any unusual occurrences or incidents and call 9-1-1 in an emergency.

Last but not least, enjoy every piece of that candy that’s coming your way tonight and have a safe and Happy Halloween 2013!

Happy Halloween 2013
