Halloween Resources and Events
Next Monday is Halloween. The U.S. Census Bureau has put together an interesting facts page for the popular holiday, including the number of businesses where you can rent or buy costumes (1,719 in 2009) and how many pounds of pumpkins are produced in the U.S. (1.1 billion pounds in 2010).
Many Utah cities and police departments have put together safety tip guides for trick or treaters and parents, including Layton, Sandy, and Lehi.
In addition to trick or treat activities, Utah cities, libraries, and schools may also be hosting Halloween activities. Contact your local city or county office, public library, or school district to see if there are Halloween related activities for you and your family. You can also search for events on the Utah Office of Tourism online calendar.
