Trick or treating is one of the great adventures of Halloween for kids and adds to many childhood memories. In addition to all the fun and excitement Halloween offers, it’s important for children to be safe.
In Northglenn, we host the perfect Halloween alternative that is safe yet fun for all children to enjoy - Safe Street Halloween! This perfect hair-raising event, presented by the Northglenn Police Department and Northglenn High School, offers trick-or-treating, fun games, cookie decorating, ghostly storytelling, and much more. It is fun for the whole family to enjoy, and best of all, it's FREE!
Northglenn High School students draw up their ideas as they plan and turn several high school classrooms into a variety of grueling haunted houses. Goblins and monsters lurk throughout the haunted tour and plenty of screams occur along the way. There are plenty of games and activities for the children to enjoy in addition to outdoor entertainment and yummy treats. This FREE event is open to children of all ages and offered a variety of games and plenty of excitement!
The city thanks all the businesses, community groups, schools and individuals who contributed candy and decorating effort to the safe and grueling event.
Businesses, Volunteers and Donations
Businesses and organizations can have a 10-square-foot area to decorate as they please and set up for activities or games. Advertising is permissible as long as it does not overshadow the event.
Citizens are invited to volunteer. Help is needed on the day of the event for setting-up, working a booth, handing out treats and cleaning up at the end of the evening.
Each year about 5,000 children attend and more than 3,500 pounds of candy are handed out. Candy donations will be accepted starting in September to make sure all those Halloween bags are filled.
