Whitefish Bay Will Trick or Treat on Oct. 28

Trick-or-treating will begin even earlier this year in Whitefish Bay, with a business district event on the Saturday before Halloween and regular door-do-door candy hunting the day after.

t’s never too early to start planning your Halloween costume – especially since Whitefish Bay will celebrate three days ahead of the official holiday.

The Whitefish Bay Village Board recently set trick or treat hours for Sunday, Oct. 28 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. 

Whitefish Bay's trick-or-treat session comes three days early this year, in keeping with other Milwaukee County communities that have agreed to hold trick or treat hours on the Sunday before Halloween. This year Halloween falls on a Wednesday.

Whitefish Bay businesses on Silver Spring Drive will also hold trick-or-treating hours on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is targeted to younger kids accompanied by at least one parent or guardian.

Linda Gumieny of Boutique Photographer captured those precious trick or treating moments on Silver Spring Drive last year in her Photo Boooooth.

All of Milwaukee County should align their hours so I can serve the local kids rather than kids from other communities. The majority of kids in WFB trick or treating are not from WFB.

Oh - I have no problem - good for them for choosing a safe place to get candy. It's once a year and it's cheap. Ha - plus my son used to double dip - he started in Fox Point (they started earlier) and worked his way down to Bay. What are you gonna do - check IDs?

I think a part of that is due to having scared so many parents into thinking that they're running a gauntlet of pedophiles and razor blades (horses and bayonets?) that some have opted for halloween "parties". I know that I don't see half the kids who actually live in the neighborhood even going out and around door to door. If it wasn't for kids coming from other areas we could probably get by with 5 bucks spent at the candy counter at the Clark station. The kids are cute, the parents are polite and it's one of the few times of year when some folks in WFB even get to interact with people from other, less prosperous areas. What's not to like?

For those of us who get an onslaught of out-of-towners, I would second the alignment of Milwaukee County trick-or-treat times. Maybe 1 of 30 kids who came to our house last year were neighborhood kids. The remainder were people (no, not just kids, but adults without children or costumes) who drove into our neighborhood parked on our street, and demanded more than 1-2 pieces of candy each. Many women even had multiple bags, "one for my baby too". We ran out of candy after just 15 minutes. Many families on our block are fearful of letting their children trick-or-treat, as these people who drove in also peel out at unnecessary speeds when they have finished. I have no problem providing a safe place for trick-or-treating, but this is obviously just taking advantage. If it were only kids who actually dressed up and said "trick-or-treat", it would be a different story.
