Hey everyone,

This is my family's first Halloween in Cornelius and we want the kids to have a great night of trick-or-treating tonight.

Any ideas of the best places/neighborhoods to take them?

Thanks for your help!

Vernon

Ok first one is probably just the best for the adults but I would enjoy driving by the lake homes along Jetton Rd then Bethel Church Road or in the Pennisula. (sp?) with hope one of a celebrity answering the door.

I would think your kids could rack up alot strolling through the homes in Birkdale Village.

Here's an idea...Stay in your own neighborhood like anyone with any sense would. I buy candy to treat the neighborhood kids, not losers who are bused in. C'mon, man!!!

I totally agree. I got so sick of it that this year I bought two different types of candy: cheap crap that nobody likes for the ones who don't live here (or teenagers who shouldn't be out), and good stuff like Reeses and Kit Kats for people from my neighborhood. It worked out perfectly, as we had a huge group of people drive from somewhere else and park their cars on the street.

Meh I don't mind the teenagers. They usually come late when I have lots of candy to get rid off so they make out pretty sweet if they come by my house.

I don't mind the polite costumed teenagers as much as the ones we typically see. This year I only saw a few, but it was almost comical. Two of them had to be 17 or 18 and they were just wearing jeans and regular shirts. Surely they can't be that desperate for free candy!

I do know what you mean though about all of the extra to get rid of. Towards the end I started giving out handfuls.

I agree - I want the kids in my neighborhood to stay in the neighborhood... if they then want to go someplace else afterward that's fine, but I feel bad for people that buy candy and get no one. At least support your neighbors — it's to have kids come up in all their costumes and you get to help them to enjoy the holiday.

@LLN, I know it's after Halloween but I wanted to repost what we ended up doing. We did do our neighborhood (Magnolia Estates) but there's a bit of time left over so we drove (not bused... ha) over to Birkdale which is more of the house after house after house kind of place.
