Four groups of maybe 12 total. Lowest in years.

Maybe 10. We used to have lots more, even though our n'hood only has maybe 50 houses. We used to have people drive through and drop off groups of kids but no more.

I had about 35, but that's probably 60% of what I normally have (live in a 'hood with lots of kids, plus apartments nearby).

Hardly any at all. I was very surprised. We had 5 young neighborhood kids, then one teenager who I'd never seen before, and then a family of 6, driving around in a car, that was not from our neighborhood or the 2 nearby. We've got lots of leftover candy.

Tons, but I still have candy leftover....the kids down here are so polite even when you hold out the bowl of candy they only take one piece, unlike NY where they try to take enough for the whole family and say things like "is this all you have?!" Funny thing is we live in a 'hood of northeast transplants. Must be something in the water....

We only got 25 or so. We have a neighborhood parade that trick-or-treats through the neighborhood, but they didn't stop by this year. I think it is because last year, we weren't planning on being home for Halloween, so when we got back early we didn't have any candy to give. Oops.

Default Not as many as last year

We had a big display... lots of fun making it and lots of fun enjoying it with everyone. But not as many kids... maybe because it's a school night?

My neighbor across the street made this an impromptu Halloween house competition... I won

Still would have liked more kids though. My husband has a lot of candy to take to work now...

I got about 20. I was shocked to get that many. I love seeing the kids in their little costumes.

I went over to Planter's Walk in Knightdale, down the street from me, it was packed with kids! Whole groups of them went from house to house. Lots of folks sat out in their driveways as kids came by constantly. Sounds like it was hopping just like Bedford as NRG mentioned.
