Many malls offer children the opportunity to trick or treat without the dangers of going door to door. Ways to find out if a local mall is participating in trick or treat is to search the local newspaper, check the mall's website or call the mall directly.
Be sure to find out what time the mall will be hosting its trick or treating event, and plan to arrive early. Candy is limited, and not every store is guaranteed to be participating in the event. In addition to trick or treating, many malls often host additional festivities, such as contests and giveaways for children during the trick or treat event.
