    one trick-or-treater here on patterson…she was probably 16, but i gave her candy anyhow since no one else ventured up our steps!

    In the Keswick-Steveston subdivisions (near Church/Pump Rds and Godwin High School) it was GREAT! There were a ton of kids and parents. We did see a car or two driving too fast but for the most part it was a great event the brought out the community.

    Amazing as always here in Oregon Hill. Handing out candy from about 6pm to 7:15-ish, and then everybody watched the fantastic Halloween Parade. Can’t wait to edit all my photos and get them up.

  4. Here on Floyd, I had a good many parents come by with one child, but two bags, and I had *several* loop around again (including one parent who came by twice, with no child). I wish I’d had more candy to give out to children instead of (greedy or forgetful) adults!

    That said, the kids who did come by were adorable as always. :)

  5. (Also, why on *earth* does an infant need their own bag of candy? Can we be a little more realistic? If the kid can’t eat candy yet, maybe their carriers shouldn’t be asking…)

    My, but I’m turning into the Halloween scrooge! But seriously, I’d love to give the candy to the kids it’s meant for!
