How many Trick or Treaters will you have?

We live in a small community so we have a captive audience of kids.. Maybe 50 -75 tonight.. beggin for candy...

How about where you live?

We had a good 100 or so here at the campground this evening. It started this morning with a scavenger hunt, and the kids (not ours) have been involved in activities all day.

Even the rain did not keep them away.

Where we live in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, we usually don't get any trick-or-treaters. We have been in the same house for fourteen years, and have only gotten one trick-or-treater in all those years.

Probably none. We live so far out of town, and back in the woods it's, well... kind of a scary, especially after dark.

We live out in the boonies too, on a private road, and all the kids in the families on the road have grown up, or they take them into town for the trick or treat experience. Since we're a mostly rural community, the town holds a special Halloween event so the rural kids can come into town and trick or treat all the businesses on main st.

In ten years here we've only gotten one trick or treater, so I just lock the driveway gate and leave the lights off anymore.

None - our local merchants host trick-or-treating for area children, so we have only had about 3 kids show up at our doorstep in the 9 years we've lived here. We still buy candy just in case.

where we live in Concord, ca. the streets are a little chewed up and the kids dont come around as much as they did in my other house . I am giving out full packs of skittles and maybe that will get the word out. I miss seeing the little guys ( and gals ) . Hope for more next year.

we shut the lights off at 7:15 after 28 big bags of candy (our neighborhood gets hit hardest in town). Earliest we've run out ever in 10 years, about 600 kids.
