Trick or Treat

Hi! I am new to the Fairmount neighborhood and am trying to figure out when trick or treating is. I gathered from Google that it's on the 31st but have not been able to find out what time. Could someone please help me out? Thanks!

  • A friend of mine who lives in Fairmount and takes his kids every year said It'll start before it gets dark, around 4:00-ish, but a lot of parents work and might not be home yet. He said he also usually gets a bunch of older kids and adults not in costumes come up and ask for candy, and that he went through a ton of candy last year.

  • Ok thanks. I don't get home from work until 6:30 so guess I should request to leave a little early!

This painting was hiding in plain sight at GlaxoSmithKline until an inventory revealed that it is part of a series painted by N. C. Wyeth in 1929. Until this discovery in 2012, eleven of the sixteen paintings were unaccounted for. GlaxoSmithKline generously donated the work to the Museum. Today, on Wyeth’s birthday, we are proud to have this painting and celebrate his incredible talent.
