What’s Happening Today – Oct. 28, 2016
Today on DelmarvaLife:
We’re celebrating Halloween today! Jimmy, Sean, and Lisa are dressed up for the occasion and we’ve got a show full of candy, DIY hair and makeup, safety tips on Halloween, and we’re playing a game called “Guess What’s Gross.”
Lt. Tim Robinson with the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office stops by to give us some safety tips for Halloween such as carrying a flashlight, wearing proper footwear, and making sure a responsible adult is with younger children. Lt. Robinson also mentions the importance of checking our children’s candy to see if there are any signs of tampering.
Studies show the average person consumes nearly three and a half pounds of candy at Halloween time. Research shows that the average trick-or-treater consumes about three cups of sugar. According to Dr. Joe Harmon with Delmarva Dental Services, the cavities aren’t necessarily his main concern. In fact it’s not even the kids he’s worried about – it’s the adults.
We show off a few furry friends that are up for adoption in today’s Pet Connect. They are dressed up in Halloween costumes and ready to find their forever home. The dogs and kittens featured in today’s show are from Worcester County Humane Society and Baywater Animal Rescue.
The National Retail Federation reports that consumers will spend nearly eight billion dollars on the Halloween holiday and nearly three billion of that will be spent on Halloween costumes. The experts at About Faces Day Spa and Salon show us how makeup, a few inexpensive accessories, and a touch of creativity, can help you transform yourself this holiday.
We welcome “The Breakers” to the DelmarvaLife stage for the first time! Angeline Leech and Michael McGrath make up the band, along with a drummer that couldn’t make it today. Angeline and Michael have been writing their own songs for many years and today they share two originals with us – “Clouds” and “Checkers.”
We’re playing “Guess What’s Gross!” Here’s how it works. Sean is the game show host and Jimmy and Lisa will compete in a challenge to see who can stick their hand in a box and try to guess what’s inside. Whoever has the most correct answers wins bragging rights. Can you guess what’s in the boxes above – bleeding heart, ear wax, vampire vomit, dead heads, witches’ eyes, and decomposed skin? Tune in at 5 pm to see if you’re correct!
