  10. It's that time of year again when vampires, witches, and Disney Princesses spookily roam the streets of Munich with bags of candy dangling from their chilled hands. Why not make your way over to our neighborhood and join in on the sweet Halloween fun?  We appreciate all of the support we can get to keep this event running as amazingly as it has been. If you would like to Trunk-or-Treat (offer candy from the decorated trunk of your car) we more than welcome you to park on Ernst-von-Beling-Straße or one of the side streets off of it. To make it easier to plan how much candy to get, last year we had between 150-250 kids.  It's suggested that the kids go in smallish groups around the neighborhood. It's harder with very large groups of kids...part of the fun is bumping into each other along the way. Think about glow sticks or other things to make sure you are well lit for the traffic. For those of you who have been here before, we will not be making a map this year but will instead hope that many neighbors participate by placing jack-o-lanterns and the like in front of their houses making it clear if they are participating. So just park your car in the area around Ernst-von-Beling-Straße and start trick-or-treating! We look forward to seeing you in our spooky garage, so be sure to stop by and say hi! Feel free to share this with anyone you think might be interested!   WHEN: October 31, from 7pm - 9pm   WHERE: Untermenzing. Park on Manzostraße, Schweidnitzerweg, or Zittenauerstr. We need room for the Trunk-or-Treaters on Ernst-Von-Beling Str.  WHAT:  Kids walk around in small groups (with adult depending on age) and bring a bag with them. All kids should wear a costume (adults are encouraged too). The costume does not have to be scary...anything goes. They go to houses which have made it obvious they are participating (pumpkins, candles, decoration) and say trick-or-treat at the door. They will normally put some candy in each kid's bag or ask the kids to take for them selves. It is best to only take one and ask if you are allowed to take more. make sure to come by the spooky house on Ernst-Von-Beling Str. (my house) as I also give adults special treats as well! (Get your mind out of the gutter please)....See you there! Just PM me with questions. You can find the Facebook event HERE:
