Have you ever run into teal pumpkins while trick or treating?

Either on a doorstep or being held by some young trick or treater?  Well, as it turns out, there's a reason for the color swap from orange to teal.

According to WTOL11, this is a message that either the trick or treater has food allergies or the house that is passing out treats is giving out "safe" trick or treat treats for children who have allergies.

The teal pumpkin project will help parents identify which homes are safe for children who suffer from this affliction.  Trick or Teal is a way for kids to feel included in one of the most exciting times of the year.  So, if you see that teal pumpkin on the porch, parents you know your child will have a safe trick or treat option.

Now, if you are passing out treats this year and are wondering where you can find allergy-free food treats?  Try the local health food stores or you can find them on Amazon.  Other options would include stopping by your favorite "dollar" store and picking up Halloween-themed stickers, glow sticks, pencils, or other assorted Halloween items for the kids.

Your trick-or-treat forecast for Bismarck Mandan looks not too spooky. 

High temperatures will be around 45 during the day.  Winds will be tolerable around 10 to 20 from the northwest.  Bundle up the kids and have a fun trick or treating this year.
