Hello,

My family moved here in the beginning of September, so this will be our first Halloween here in Henderson. I know different communities do different things, so I wanted to ask what the "etiquette" is for kids trick or treating. Is it pretty standard to do door-to-door on Halloween night, even if it is on a week night? I saw there is a "Trunk-or-Treat" going on the 27th. Should we do both? I also saw there is a trick or treat thing going on at the District. So, anyone have any advice? Would love to hear input. Our kids are 3 years old and 11 months old, so we would only want events for little ones. Thanks for the help!

I don't live in Henderson, but anywhere I have ever lived we just go on Halloween night. We did do the Halloween event at Springs Preserve on our first Halloween here. It was fun, but we have more fun walking the neighborhood

What part of Henderson? We get a ton of door-to-door little goblins down in Anthem Highlands area.

There's a swell Halloween pumpkin park over on Stephanie past Warm Springs by the DMV that's pretty cool for kids. Trick or Treat wise I have no idea. Probably your own neighborhood would be a good bet. I'm sure they have to be doing something around there.

Trick or treating all over town. Be very careful when out in the dark, especially when walking and having to cross the streets. Too many people getting hit and it's not just kids.
You can drive out to some good neighborhoods like a lot of families do and get the kids a really good haul.
Most of the HOA's out here will tell you that if the porch light is on, they are usually participating. Good luck and get lots of candy.

Thanks for the tips! We live in the Valle Verde/Paseo Verde area, about a mile from the District. I think we will just try to go door to door in our community. I just wanted to make sure that was the thing to do around here. I appreciate the advice.

We have over 300,000 school aged kids here so be careful driving on Halloween Night as at least 2/3 of them will be out Trick or Treating. There are safe Halloween events around town on different days too, which are the ones you mentioned. Halloween is a big deal here. It is also the birthday of our state, but that is always celebrated on the last weekend of the month so that students can take part in parades, or go to Carson City for the big party.

I believe y'all may thank me for coming up with "Safe Halloween" about 30 years ago when some ladies came to me at CH-3 for ideas about a Halloween event. Can't prove it, but after we discussed it they started doing it here and it went national. Unless there were simultaneous ideas along the same lines around the country, which happens more than you'd think.

You will be in there with the multiple millions of children who make the door to door treat on October 31st.

In this part of the world it is done no other way...though do-gooders may try to make it better or safer.

If you live in a reasonable area do the local.

We live in the fringe on the NW and get at most two kids a haloween. They are amply rewarded. Then we eat the leftovers for a week or two.

Yep, we just go door to door. I remember enjoying it as a kid so that is what I am going to take my boys to do. I can't remember, are there certain hours to trick or treat? When we lived in Illinois, we could only go during certain hours on Halloween.

We have always lived in rural NJ & never gotten a trick or treater. (Maybe one, once) We are excited to live in a community for the first time where we will get to see lots of little ones in their costumes! This is our baby's 1st halloween too, so we are really looking forward to it all the way around. We are also glad to be able to do door-to-door in our own town. Last year, we had to drive 3 towns over due to an ice storm which canceled all of the local trick or treating due to downed power lines. This year is going to be great!

And thank you for the safety tips. We will be sure to watch out for cars and kids if we are driving.
