Thursday is Halloween and we've got a list of places in Greater Danbury that are offering safe trick or treating for your kids.

Halloween has become one of the most popular holidays, and why not? There's no other holiday in which you can go to someones house and get free candy. What a sweet deal. With that being said, there's also concern with little ones going to strangers' houses, even when accompanied by parents.

So here's a list of "safe" trick-or-treating events being planned in and around the Greater Danbury area.

Trick-or-Treating at Stew Leonards in Danbury

There's Halloween Day trick-or-treating event at Stew Leonards' on Federal Road in Danbury. On Thursday, October 31, children who come to the store in their costumes will receive a free ice cream.

Mall Wide Trick Or Treating at the Danbury Fair Mall

Thursday October 31st, bring all your ghosts and goblins to Danbury Fair's mall-wide trick-or-treat event from 4 PM until 6 PM. Candy and other treats available at participating retailers while supplies last. This event is for kids 12 and under, and no masks will be allowed inside the mall.

Trunk-or-Treat on the Town Green in New Milford

Billed as a "safe alternative" to trick or treating. Instead of trick or treating in your neighborhood, people are asked to register their vehicles, decorate them, and then park around the town green on Halloween night from 5:30-7:30. Owners of the cars then pass out candy as children "trunk or treat" from car to car. This type of event is becoming more and more popular in our local communities.

It's the Norman Rockwell Halloween Experience in Kent
