What’s Happening Today – Oct. 27, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
It’s the 2017 DelmarvaLife Halloween show!
You want your little ghouls and goblins to have fun this Halloween, but the holiday can be dangerous if you don’t take some precautions. From stranger danger, to being visible in the dark, spooky night, we tell you how to make sure everyone stays safe and sound this Halloween.
Halloween can be downright miserable if part of your costume puts you at risk for a serious infection. Catherine Smoot-Haselnus, M.D., a board-certified ophthalmologist, with Chesapeake Eye Center, tells us about the dangers of colored, decorative eye contacts. Dr. Smoot says, if you want to go that route, visit your eye care provider to get an appropriate fit and a legal prescription.
Perhaps you’re still a bit baffled as to what you’re going to dress up as this Halloween. A little makeup, and a touch of creativity, can go a long way. Our friends at About Faces Day Spa and Salon can help. They research the trends and come up with some of the hottest looks of the Halloween season. We’ll show you one of them.
We’re also seeing to it that your four-legged family members stay safe this Halloween. Dr. Elizabeth Bruce, the medical director with the Veterinary Medical Center in Easton, stops by to share a few tidbits you’ll want to keep in mind as your doorbell rings Tuesday night. It’s a game we like to call “terrible or treat.” If you don’t have a four-legged friend to look after, we’re taking care of that today, too.
Our friends from the Humane Society of Wicomico County stop by, with a few festive fur balls that need a loving home. It’s another edition of Pet Connect – Halloween style.
We have tricks and treats in the DelmarvaLife kitchen. DelmarvaLife Facebook Live Host, Lauren Hitch, stops by with a couple of spooky snacks that will ensure your Halloween celebration will be the talk of the town. Today, she’s making severed fingers (Cannibal’s Hot Dogs) and Jack Skeleton Oreo cookies.
What would a Halloween show be without a little messy fun? 102.5 WBOC‘s Corey Phoebus and DelmarvaLife Facebook Live Host, Lauren Hitch, go head-to-head, literally, in what we are calling an “egg-cellent” game. Let’s see who wins bragging rights!
The band “Waverunner” is here, and they’re in the Halloween spirit, too. Today, they’re playing two original tunes: “Weeping Love” and “The Night’s Young.
It’s not every day you get the chance to win a brand new roof for your home. It’s all thanks to Spicer Bros. Construction‘s Delmarva’s Neediest Roof Contest. Nominations can be made from Oct. 2-Oct. 31. The voting period will be Nov. 6-Nov. 26 and the winner will be announced on Dec. 1 on DelmarvaLife. Spicer Bros. will actually be giving away two roofs instead of just one this year. There will be two separate winners – one from DE/MD and one from VA. Enter here.
Plus, we announce another winner in our “Disney Live! Mickey and Minnie’s Doorway to Magic” giveaway. Will today be your lucky day?
