Ghosts, goblins and children of all ages will have a chance to have a safe and fun Halloween thanks to Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) and the Fairdale Community Club as they present “Trick or Treat Street”.

“This is a fun time of year for children and their families,” says Welch. “And every year, I look forward to meeting kids and their parents.”

“Trick or Treat Street will get underway on Thursday, October 30th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the Fairdale Playtorium, 10616 W. Manslick Rd.

Councilwoman Welch has provided Neighborhood Development Funds for the event as a safe alternative to trick or Treating. She will also provide trick or treat bags with healthy pretzel treats and Kids Safety ID information.

“It is an opportunity to let children know that they need a healthy diet along with the candy,” says Welch. “But I also have something planned to help parents too.”

Many businesses and agencies in the Fairdale area will also be on hand providing information and special treats for children who come out on October 30th.

“We owe a great deal of thanks to the Fairdale Community club for organizing such a wonderful event every year,” says Welch. “I also want to thank the businesses and other groups who will be here to show they care about our children.”
