My neighborhood gets flooded with kids - think they're bused in because we don't have that many kids in the neighborhood. They start around dusk and go til about 8:30. You're right, nothing official, nothing in the media or Cape Coral website (but that's typical, they're too busy worrying about the size of their new (free) trash cans...

Mostly retired folks where I live, but I have my KitKat bars and Butterfingers ready..just in case! Are Butterfingers supposed to be that hard? I know my teeth are terrible, but I had to pound one of those suckers with a hammer. I think it's kind of funny that we are trying to teach our kids to health healthful foods and avoid sweets & junk food, and then we have a night dedicated to collecting more candy than you can possibly eat without puking.

Happy Halloween! http://bestsmileys.com/halloween1/5.gif (broken link)

Anyone with any answers would be greatly appreciated! I'm looking forward to finding a good place to take my children and celebrate!

36th street is the best place to go trick or treating.

I think Sandoval is the one of the craziest places I've ever trick or treated! Felt like something out of a movie!! My kids still have candy left over.

Mostly the one's that start really early are the folks whit the really little kids. We have lots of kids in the area and it's their one day to have fun so who cares when they start, and since it is a school day it wont be till after school.
The thing I do object to is the people that cart their kids in to neighborhoods where they don't live, just so they can get more candy.
The only value you teach your kid is greed in that situation.

There are entire neighborhoods where people don't turn their lights on and refuse to answer doors. And I mean throughout the country. There are also neighborhoods where they actively want children to come from other neighborhoods.

But hey, when you have a penchant for turning everything into a whine and a paranoid conspiracy, you might as well go for a children's holiday, too.
