TETNA’s Halloween Trick or Treat nighttime event is back, this year with a new costume contest and special goodies for participating children, sponsored by Hue Vietnamese, Mathnasium and Philleo Agency Insurance.
Renew your TETNA membership now, and mark your calendars for the evening of Saturday, Oct. 28. This year’s event will begin with a kickoff party at center street park at 6 p.m. Let your children show off their costumes in the costume contest/parade. Children will be broken into 2 groups based on their ages (0-6 and 7-14), with prizes awarded in each age group!
Nighttime trick or treat will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Every year, TETNA offers this safe and fun event in our neighborhood. This year we are continuing our new tradition of opening the TETNA Trick or Treat event to all neighborhood blocks! So get your costumes, candy buckets and spooky faces ready to explore the Halloween festivities that our whole neighborhood has to offer.
The Trick or Treat event is for TETNA members and coincides with membership renewal, so even if you are not participating in Trick or Treat it is still time to renew (see the form on page 11).
Come to the registration and sign up! New this year, the first 500 people to drop off their candy at registration will be given a reusable trick or treat bag and activity book. All participants will get a glow stick and a map with event info.
The cost to participate is a 100-piece bag of candy per child. The candy must be individually wrapped and factory sealed. Due to safety concerns, we cannot accept opened bags of candy.
If you also are handing out candy and want to keep the kind you bought, just let us know at in-person registration, or you can just sign up online. (If you still need to renew or join TETNA, you will need to complete registration first).

Want to hand out candy?
Come to registration and sign up! You will get a TETNA Trick or Treat sign to put in your window to identify your house as a TETNA participant and some candy to get you started.
Note that this is a very popular event and we’re not able to provide all the candy that you might need to accommodate all the trick-or-treaters.
You can either purchase more candy on your own or turn out your light when the candy runs out. Note: if you don’t plan to accept candy from TETNA, you can sign up online and print your Trick or Treat sign at home.
Don’t forget about the teal pumpkin project too. Homes decorated with these brightly colored pumpkins indicate treats suitable for children who have been diagnosed with food allergies.
