Waukesha County & Metro Milwaukee Trick or Treat Guide

Waukesha County & Metro Milwaukee Trick or Treat Guide

How we love Halloween – seeing the fun costumes, being with friends and family, and the yummy treats. The 2020 Halloween holiday will look different this year. Many families may choose to dress up at home and do virtual parties with family and friends. Some families may go out to their neighborhood as their family unit without their larger group of friends and family. Some may forego celebrating at all this year. Whatever plan your family chooses for your unique situation is the right decision. 

Lake Country Family Fun’s 2020 list of Trick or Treat times for local municipalities in or near Waukesha County will make it easier to find your trick or treating times in the area if you are choosing to go out. The majority of the municipalities listed below have put out their date and times with the caveat to only approach participating homes; homes with their porch or outside light on.

We have the list of events split up below for you to find the family fun you are looking for. Some events are cancelled in 2020, while others have created new ways to have safe family fun. 

We love these tips rolling in for the families that want to hand out treats for trick or treating:

  • Trick or treat with your family unit instead of a big group.
  • Trick or treat in your neighborhood v. traveling to other communities. 
  • Stay outside the whole time so children are not coming up to the door and touching the door bell.
  • Using a table set up in the front yard to spread candy/treats out so there is no “digging in a bowl”.
  • Using a “grabber” type device or a PVC chute to maintain a distance between the hander-outer and the trick or treaters.  

Regardless of how your family celebrates Halloween this years, please be sure to keep your kids safe this holiday season. Again, only visit homes with their porch lights on and inspect all candy/treats prior to eating. And be sure to stay home if anyone in your family is not feeling well. There will be more years to celebrate Halloween in the future if someone in your family feels ill this year. 

We love little tidbits of fun. Did you know that glow sticks are wonderful for helping cars see you and your children at night while trick or treating? These can be found at various stores in the area.  Hello Fleet Farm and Dollar Store! 😉 Please also remember to be on the lookout for teal pumpkins if your little has food allergies. Learn more about the Teal Pumpkin Project here and find our 22 fan favorite non-candy Halloween treats here. A great way to stay healthy is to limit sugar intake. We hope that your ghosts and goblins have the time of their lives this Halloween!

And if you stocked up on too much candy from all the trick or treating, consider these local Halloween Candy Buy Back programs through participating dental offices.
