One of the most common questions American Expats have this time of year is “Is there trick or treating in Singapore?” or “Where can I go trick or treating in Singapore?”
Yes, there is trick or treating.
On Halloween (Oct 31), take a CAB to the Singapore American School in Woodlands starting around 7. DO NOT drive yourself-there is no parking.
You will see giant hordes of people trick or treating on the streets adjacent to SAS. The police block off the streets to make them a pedestrian zone. People will be at their gates handing out candy (see above).
We went last year and it was an absolute blast. E got a lot of candy (as well as a temp tattoo-which in her world was the best thing ever). Americans, Singaporeans, everyone is welcome.
Ellie will be going as a Pirate Princess (complete with hat and sword) and Rhiannon will be her pirate first mate (yes there will be pictures). If you still need a costume, there are some options at the more “expat” Cold Storages (Jelita, Great World City and United Square all have a few, with Jelita having the best selection) and some Toys R Us have a selection (if I recall the one at Forum had a reasonable display). Don’t expect the kind of selection you get in the US, but with a little creativity you’ll do just fine.
