Speaking for the downtown "Village" area of Claremont; AMAZING trick-or-treating, but no, I wouldn't let kids go unattended.

There is a really fun festival at a church in Lancaster, it's at 44514 20th Street W, near Ave J. They have games, a hay maze, bounce houses and slides, and tons of candy. We go there every year, my kids love it. They get more candy there than trick or treating and it is a safe environment.

I would not allow my children out on Halloween unattended anywhere anymore. People w/o kids aren't allowed to answer this one :-)

It's fun if you are in a family friendly area with tons of kids. I wouldn't let them go alone (unless you are talking about teenagers), but that's nothing to do with CA, it's just good parenting.

(depending on their age) Sad, considering we all went without parents when I was a kid, just 20-something years ago.
Even 20 years ago our kids didn't go without us until they were about 10, nor did my grandkids and we are talking nice, middle class neighborhoods. It wasn't only the possibility of someone hurting them, it was fun to walk around and see all the kids.

The lastest thing here is called "Trunk or Treat" it is sponsored by the churches and held in the church parking lot. People bring the treats and pass them out in the parking lot. It really has cut down on the door to door route we were used to. The kids love it, the parents do and it is safe as those participating are from the church involved.

When we lived in NM families from across the river would come into our neighborhood because they seem to think we would have better treats (not so) some friends would have near 200 or 300 kids, if you needed to be out or were coming home from about 6pm to 8pm it was almost impossible to drive down the streets. Moms with 3 month old babies would go door to door, all this did was ruin the entire fun of the evening. I hated it!!!

It's died off where we're at.

Ten years ago we'd get 30 - 50 kids.

Last year we got 4.

Part of it is childlessness in our area.

Part of it is, helicopter parents who seem to leave to area completely to take their kids to "events" where there is a managed trick of treat, for example, at a shopping mall.

Part of it is, the curse of the glowing blue screen, be it a big screen on the wall or little ones on lap tops and PDAs.

Sad stuff.
