What should you do with all that Halloween candy?

It is November 1st so that means it is time to start talking turkey!  I am going to put away all of the Halloween decorations today.  The kids have gone through all of their candy, picked their favorites, and traded the ones that they wanted to give away.  However, between the Downtown Trick or Treat, trick or treating around the neighborhood, treats from friends, school and more, we are innundated with candy.  There is no way we could possibly eat all of this nor should we!  What do you do with your leftover Halloween candy?

Donate it to the USO Northwest Florida.  They have list of candies and other items from 2010.

Check with your children’s school.  The teachers sometimes use treats as rewards or during parties.

Take it to a dentist or orthodontist participating in the Halloween Candy Buyback Programs.  Bring your unopened candy to Shehee and Callahan (1007 Airport Blvd) from November 1 to the 4th.  Everyone who donates candy will receive a free firefly light-up toothbrush and goody bag.  Everyone who donates at least a pound of candy will earn a chance to win prizes.  The candy will be donated to the local USO and will benefit local military.

Donate to Operation Shoebox.  They will go through the candy and ship it to the troops.  According to their website, their mailing address is: Operation Shoebox; 8360 E Highway 25; Belleview, FL 34420.

Do you know of any other locations that are accepting extra Halloween candy?

According to Downtown Pensacola, approximately 50 businesses are participating on Palafox, Jefferson and Garden Streets.  Children 9 and under can trick or treat at the participating businesses.  Trick or treating will be on October 28 from 4pm to 6pm.

Participating businesses will be marked with balloons and a bright orange Halloween Trick-or-Treat poster.

For more information, contact alex@downtownpensacola.com and be sure to check Downtown Pensacola for any changes and updates.

Haunted Houses and Ghosts Tours

Hay and corn mazes and pumpkin patches provide lots of family fun.  I have a secret to share.  That is about as scary as it gets for us because I usually stick to that sort of Halloween activity.  The thought of walking through a haunted house makes my skin crawl.  Luckily, my kids are still young enough that they don’t dig the scary activities either!  I have a few more years before I find myself running from someone covered in pretend blood wielding a chainsaw but if you want to be scared (a little or a lot!) try these haunted houses and ghost tours!

Spooky Pensacola – Haunted Houses and Ghost Tours

I hate to be scared.  I don’t do haunted houses and I don’t do spooky movies.  For the record, I will listen to ghost stories as long as it isn’t in front of a campfire in the middle of the woods where I will have to try to sleep the next eight hours.  But, I know some of you out there love to be scared so here is what we could find!  Not all activities will be suitable for children, but they might be perfect for a date night (yikes…not that you would ever see me there!!!).  Be sure to check out all the details before you choose to go!
