OKLAHOMA CITY – It is already October, which means Halloween is just around the corner.

While many kids are dreaming about the candy bars, one out of every 13 children has a food allergy which makes Halloween a difficult event.

The Teal Pumpkin Project sends a message to those children that they can still trick-or-treat without the dangers.

A teal pumpkin in front of your home shows children that you offer non-food treats like stickers, glow sticks or toys.

If you want to join in the project, you can bring your own pumpkin to the Oklahoma Institute of Allergy Asthma & Immunology on Thursday, Oct. 6.

From 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the clinic will be supplying teal paint to allow you to make your own teal pumpkin.
