Do you live in an area where you get a lot of Trick or Treaters

Posted October 8, 2015 - 11:16pm

Do you? Also when does trick or treating start in your area (time of day)?

We live on a Military base and we do get quite a few trick-or-treaters. It is like a gated community within the city so it is different. The little ones start at around 4:30-5 and trick-or-treating is until around 9.

Frugal Minded M...

We have about 100 and it goes from 6:00 to 7:30.


Frugal Minded Mom...that is a lot in a short period of time! We may get close to 75 in about 4 hours or so.


Frugal Minded...that's insanity! Do you live in a historical district?


I am so sad. Trick or Treating is such a dying thing where we are. Last year we hiked the roller coaster hills and 2.5 hours and 1.8 miles my kiddos had 17 pieces of candy (and we were in the city)....we only had 2 trick-or-treaters! Trick or Treating begins at dusk where we are.


aww....:(...that is one good thing about living here on a military base but not as many people particpate as I wish. On out street, there are quite a few kids.


Average amount. It starts about dusk.


I get a steady stream of kids from 6 to 8 or 815. I usually go through 8 bags of candy and then when I run out I turn the lights off and hide!


Until this year we didn't really have kids in our neighborhood.  As it is, I still doubt we will get trick or treaters.  Our neighborhood is too small — families will likely go elsewhere.  I think trick or treating usually starts around 7ish when it starts to get dark.


So, is everyone ready for Halloween?
