LANSING, Ill. (October 29, 2022) – Sunshine, warm temps, and windless skies made Halloween Saturday a perfect day for early trick-or-treating, and Lansing offered plenty of options. Bethel Church (3500 Glenwood-Lansing Road) offered trunk-or-treating in their north parking lot from 2–4 p.m. Community organizations and local businesses set up tables for trick-or-treaters at Fox Pointe (18138 Henry Street) from 2–4 p.m. And the Legion Riders hosted their first motorcycle trunk-or-treat event at the American Legion (18255 Grant Street).
Bethel Church Trunk-or-Treat
Eighteen Bethel Church members decorated their car trunks, loaded buckets with candy, and lined the north parking lot to welcome trick-or-treaters on Halloween Saturday afternoon.
Fox Pointe Trick-or-Treating
Halloween Saturday was in full swing at Fox Pointe, where approximately 25 community organizations set up tables to hand out candy to hundreds of trick-or-treaters.
Legion Riders Trunk-or-Treat
“Our busiest time was between 4:00 and 4:30, as people were leaving Fox Pointe” said Legion Rider Patty Grigutis, who helped organize the Riders’ Trunk-or-Treat. The American Legion is directly south of Fox Pointe, across Ridge Road.
“The kids were ALL polite and dressed so cute,” said Grigutis.
Lansing’s official trick-or-treating hours are 4–7 p.m. on Monday, October 31. Currently the forecast calls for showers in the morning and cloudiness during the hours of trick-or-treating.
