Neighborhoods to go trick-or-treating?

Hey guys,

I am assuming that some members have young ones or nieces and nephews.

Can you recommend a good neighborhood to go trick or treating for Halloween?

We tried the mall last year and it was a gong show. Hoping someone can provide some good spots - preferably toddler friendly.

Thanks!

anywhere around an elementary school

seems like less and less people every year though .... last year I took some cousins and just ended up buying em a box of candy at the end of the night because there was maybe only ~15 houses in our area actually handing out candy

Any newish neighbourhood will do. The families are young. The houses are packed close together. I'm near the mall in Langley, and my it was busy last year.

I'd suggest heading to Langley/Clayton Heights area. Small neighbourhoods with young families. The houses are also really close together so your little ones won't get too tired too quickly.

Isn't the tradition to trick or treat around your own neighborhood?

Some neighbourhoods are not really ideal....I am surrounded by apartment buildings. Not the best place to trick or treat.

When I was 12 I had my first sexual experience. At the time, I lived in a little suburb outside of Cleveland and anyway, the girl next door and I were really good friends. Our parents were both gone for the day and she was over playing Transformers with me. So anyway, we kinda got. Bored I guess? And we started playing truth or dare, which turned into 'you show me yours, I'll show you mine". So anyway there I Was, 12 years old, heart pounding, blood rushing in my ears, and the chick (who was a year older than me actually) takes off her panties and hikes her little skirt up. So what did I do, you ask? I whistled for a cab, and when it came near, the license plate said "fresh" and there were dice in the mirror. If anything I could say that this cab was rare, but I thought "naw forget it, yo home to bel-air!" I pulled up to the house about seven or eight and I yelled to the cabbie "yo homes smell ya later!" Looked at my kingdom, I was finally there. To settle my throne as the prince of bel-air.

That's where I live. My street we get maybe 10-15 kids for the last 5 years, my buddy 2 blocks away 400+ every year he runs out of candy.

North Van. Especially the area around Edgemont village where tons of kids are cuz of (highlands, canyon heights, Cleveland, elementary). Generally very safe here and lots of old people live in the area. As an added bonus they give out good candy too.

Huh?

Go to the british properties in west van. Sure the houses are far apart and the roads are hilly, but you actually get good candy. instead of lollipops and rockets, you get mars bars and snickers. Many houses give full size candy bars, and many houses will give kids LOTS of candy because they buy a big box and only get two or three kids that actually brave the weather and hills to go trick or treating.

I lived in a house with a pretty long driveway, and used to dump about half of one of those boxes of kit-kats and coffee crisps into every kids bag, of course I would always have leftovers to eat for the next couple days.

And there were always the houses that simply left out bowls of candy and went away for the night, these are like jackpots if you are asshole enough to take all the candy they leave out. (if you go around 630 to 7ish you can make it to these houses before anyone else).

I bet you're one of those sick freaks who hand out organic pesticide free apples with a Merkur razor blade inside them and along with it, a pamphlet that says "Don't eat meat!" on the front.

it seems like the Halloween tradition of going trick-o-treating is dying, few years back, when i handed out candies, i always ran out, but now, i have boxes left over. Although, I have to say that langley area might be a good place to trick-o-treat since there's probably a rising young family population

I live really close to Magee, and 2 years ago we were having a big family dinner (older cousin was getting married the day after), my then 8 year old cousin decided she wanted to try handing out candy instead of going around trick-o-treating. Not a single person knocked on our door that night, even though we left our gates opened and we had our outside lights on.

Us cousins had a lot of candy to eat the next few weeks

we've always given full sized bars but less and less people come each year but we still buy the same amount "just in case" as a result each kid usually gets several bars


Side Note, the radio was stating that a lot of schools aren't allowing kids to dress up for halloween because the schools don't want to offend any religions
