All sorts of monsters, ghosts, superheroes and who-knows-what-else will be taking to the streets of Lawrence in the coming days in search of candy and other treats.
The city of Lawrence is recommending residential door-to-door trick-or-treating from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, which is Halloween. But that isn't the only time and place that costumed kids can get a hold of some treats. Here are a few more:
• Kansas University residence halls on Daisy Hill will open doors to candy seekers from 5 to 7 p.m. A not-too-scary haunted house, a fun fair and a trick-or-treat area will be split among three residence halls. Children must be accompanied by adults for all activities.
• The Hy-Vee at 3504 Clinton Parkway will have special candy in each department for trick-or-treaters from 4 to 6 p.m..
• Residents of the Drury Place at Alvamar retirement community will dispense candy from 6 to 7 p.m.
• Beginning at 5:00 p.m. and running “until the candy runs out,” kids can trick-or-treat at the businesses on Massachusetts Street, according to Sally Zogry, executive director of Downtown Lawrence, Inc. Participating business will have a representative located out front on the sidewalk handing out treats.
• Dozens of decorated trunks and truck-beds will fill the parking lot at Lawrence Free Methodist Church, 3001 Lawrence Ave. Kids can trunk-or-treat from 6-7 p.m.
