There’s a chill in the air, and no…it’s not the weather.

Halloween is right around the corner, little ghosts and goblins are preparing to descend on unsuspecting* neighbors demanding tricks or treats.

*ok, maybe they are expecting it

But what’s a mom to do when she realizes that Halloween falls on a Tuesday in 2017?

A school night! *gasp* How frightening!

We may have found a solution for you!

Trick or Treat and Trunk or Treat events have been popping up all over the Rockford Area for several years now, but this year it seems like the number had increased a lot.

There are even some on Halloween!

We put together a list of 13 Trick or Treat and Trunk or Treat events in the Rockford Area this year for you to take your kids to.

As always, check with the organizing business or person for the most up to date information.
And for the most up to date list of all the family friendly events happening in Rockford and beyond, check out our Events Calendar
