It’s almost time for the annual Sweet Street event in Green Bay at Shopko Hall! If you’ve never been to Sweet Street before you should definitely check it out with the family this year. It is a great indoor trick-or-treating event where the kids can show off those costumes without having to worry about getting cold or wet. And there are lots of other fun attractions besides the candy. Let’s go mommy is one of the sponsors this year, so please look for my “door” when trick-or-treating on the Street. Last year let’s go mommy hosted the cookie booth and it was a huge hit and lots of fun for my girls and I…unfortunately this year we weren’t able to do it because I’m going to be out of town attending my college homecoming and class reunion in Illinois that weekend, but we hope to return to the cookie booth next year!
