For Simone's first trick or treat event this year, we were able to go to Fun Ranch's Howl-O-walk event last Oct. 24, 2010. Before i post their pictures (which are still in the husband's phonecam), let me share with you my take about the event.
* I knew from the start the there are not so many establishments in fun ranch, thus, less treats for the kids but since it's free, we opted to go. harhar.
*It's really hot there. Even if there were fans, ceiling fans or wall fans, it would'nt be enough. I remember we seldom go there since the place is outdoors and then some establishments are airconed and going in and out of the aircon and non-aircon rooms can make kids sick. So when we had the trick or treat, I changed simone to her Zoe costume, a little more comfortable outfit than her Jesse outfit. I saw some babies in overalls and really thick clothing. Although i found it really cute, it's just so hot that they'd cry afterwards. :(
*The organizers were okay. It's just that i hope they gave more leeway for the non-registered participants. Apparently, it's an online pre-registration but i think about 75% of the participants there were non-registered (including us) so we have to wait an hour more from the start of the event to give way for the registered participants. About 15 minutes before our time, i asked if we could line up already so we could get first. And she said no as we'd have to wait exactly at 4pm. I did'nt get it. Lining up will make their lives easier but she did'nt allow it. But other moms still lined up so we lined up as well. haha.
*Our kids enjoyed the treats. Their pumpkins did'nt get full but it was a good experience :)
We're off to another trick or treating today! :)
