Re: When do you Trick Or Treat?

It's always the 31st here. This is the first year I've ever seen times (6-8) in our newsletter.

Re: When do you Trick Or Treat?

Since when does the city govern this? I've only ever heard of trick or treating happening on days other than halloween itself in the case of halloween falling on a sunday, and even then most communities around here just kinda shrugged and said "So?". Kids trick or treat on the 31st, start sometime around 5 (my parents wouldn't let us start until 6, and most of the kids I saw earlier than that were toddlers), and there's usually no one left out but teenagers in hoodies past 9ish.

Re: When do you Trick Or Treat?

We don't generally have door to door trick or treating where I live. The town's trick or treating is actually just a big line where you walk through downtown and get candy from all of the shops. That is how all of the local towns do it here. It is on Halloween unless it is a Sunday (then they choose another day) and 4pm-6pm.

We've had 1 trick or treater come to our door the 7 years we've lived in our house (and we live one block off downtown).

Re: When do you Trick Or Treat?

Ours is always on Halloween and no specific times but usually 5:30/6-9ish. It would seem weird to do it on a different day

I've never heard of having set times either. Here, it's always the 31st, no set times but usually people start as early as 5:00 with most people starting around 6. We go until it gets dark or kids get too cold, usually around 7-7:30 and our doorbell stops ringing around 8.

When you get hundreds of kids, you get set times!! Plus we are very high traffic areas, so it helps keep kids safe
