More and more families are looking for a safe way to celebrate Halloween.  Trick or treating has been limited to people you know and trust.  There have been safe events in the Northland in the past, but once you've attending them for two or three years, you start looking for new ideas.  The City of Duluth delivers with two free family-friendly events.

For families with young children, the City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department is sponsoring a Halloween Party this Wednesday.  It will be held at the Duluth Heights Community Center, 33 Mulberry Street, from 9:00-11:00 AM. Come in costume!  A costume show on stage will be followed by a healthy treat and games parents can play with their children. A free-will donation to the weekly Play Game Program would be greatly appreciated, but is not required to attend.

For kids of all ages, the Parks and Recreation Department is encouraging families to stop by the Heritage Sports Center, 120 West Michigan Street on Wednesday, between 5:00-6:00 PM for a treat, games, face painting and a costume parade through the 'slightly haunted' locker room halls. Free public skating will follow from 6:30-8:00 PM, with Halloween music and fun. For safety purposes, no costumes on the ice, please. For more information on either event, call 730-4322.

Have a safe and FUN Halloween!!!
