Hey kids! Wear your costumes to the Burlington Country Library on Halloween to go trick-or-treating for a non-food treat!

This year, the library is showing its support for the Teal Pumpkin Project®, which raises awareness of food allergies and promotes inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season. All little ghosts, witches, superheroes and other costumed characters are invited to grab their Halloween treat bags to collect some non-food treats at the library from 10am to 8:45pm on October 31.

Adults can show their support too! Simply place a teal-colored pumpkin in front of your home to signify you’ll also be passing out non-food treats to trick-or-treaters who stop by this Halloween. You can also display a free printable sign or poster from FARE (Food Allergy and Research & Education) to explain the meaning of your teal pumpkin. FARE's Teal Pumpkin Project is a worldwide movement to create a safer, happier Halloween for all kids.
