Sheboygan Unveils Ambitious Plan to Power the City Using the Energy of Children’s Halloween Excitement


SHEBOYGAN, WI – The city of Sheboygan is renowned for its innovative, albeit slightly unconventional, approaches to tackling real-world problems. This Halloween, city officials are at it again with an ambitious plan to turn children’s boundless Halloween excitement into a clean, renewable energy source.

Mayor Nutty McNutface, first of his name, holder of acorns, announced the revolutionary initiative at a press conference held at the city’s famous 24/7 Library Discotheque. The plan hinges on harnessing the kinetic energy produced by children as they dash from house to house, their bags swelling with bountiful harvests of candies.

“We have tapped into a virtually inexhaustible energy resource,” declared the mayor, his eyes gleaming with a mix of ingenuity and the residual effects of last night’s rave. “The sheer velocity of children in pursuit of sugary treats is a force of nature unto itself.”

The technology, developed in collaboration with the esteemed Sheboygan Institute of Theoretical and Totally Experimental Sciences (SITTES), involves children donning specially-designed ‘Energy Suits’ that capture and convert their kinetic energy into electricity as they run, jump, and occasionally stumble their way through the Halloween candy collection process.

With every “trick or treat” chanted, energy will be harvested and funneled into the city’s grid. Early calculations suggest that the collective excitement of Sheboygan’s youth could power the entire city until the holiday season, another prospective energy goldmine the city is keen to explore.

Residents are largely in favor of the initiative. “It’s simply brilliant,” raved local resident Bertha Mumbles, as she knitted a costume for her cat. “The children get candy, and we get energy. It’s a win-win!”

Environmentalists are hailing Sheboygan as a beacon of sustainable innovation. The city’s children are equally excited, if not slightly bewildered, by the prospect of becoming miniature power plants for the evening.

This Halloween, as you admire the parade of ghosts, witches, and energy-generating superheroes darting through the streets of Sheboygan, remember – each “boo” is not just a festive exclamation, but also a testament to a city that turns even the most fantastical elements of the holidays into a source of sustainable innovation.
