The Grizzlies will be having trick or treating Friday night at the game as well, if you have any interest in that.

Kids will show up as soon as it gets dark....about 5:30, even earlier if they are real young with their parents. It is usually over by about 7-8:00. Just turn off your porch light and make the house look dark and the kids will quit coming to your door.

Have fun and happy birthday!

Oh man!! I am missing this by a few days! We wont be in Memphis until Wed! I cant find any info on Trick or Treating here in OKC. So here we are in the count down and we have no idea where we are going tonight... But candy will be had I assure you!!

Also dont forget Zoo's usually do a trick or treating event. Most zoos Ive been around have done some sort of event, Boo at The Zoo... The one here in OKC is doing Haunt The Zoo. They have several vendors passing out candies. Perhaps the Memphis zoo has something similar set up!

OP do not let this get out...

Shhh

I know a lot of folks who take their kids over into the deep suburbs of Bartlett to go trick or treating.

That suburb which is really close to the government offices for the city and all of that seems to be pretty darned safe.

Don't tell Mayor Keith Mc Donald I told you, man.

I realize this is already after Halloween, but I thought it was interesting.

In my hometown in NJ and even in the hospital housing where I lived in NY, kids would to get candy. So I bought a fair amount of candy, but nobody came. I live on Mud Island in one of the gated communities, so that may be a contributing factor, but I thought surely there must be some kids here. Apparently not. I'm going to try to return the candy to Kroger later today.

I forget who posted about ignoring the origins of Halloween, but I agree. It should just be done for fun and a sense of community. I made some friends with people when I was younger because I met them while going trick-or-treating. If I hadn't talked to them on the street about their costumes, etc., they would probably have just been another face in the school hallway.

Sort of like Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'm not Christian, but my family and I use those holidays as an excuse to get together with each other and with relatives. Too much political correctness these days.

Colliervillemom....word gets out quickly who is giving out the good candy!

I agree, too much political correctness these days, everywhere! We went trick-or-treating with 9 adults and 11 kids this year. We had pizza before we left at the neighbor's house and the kids had a great time, just like I did when I was a kid!
