Trick or Treaters in costume? Just one and she was pretty tired.

Probably a dozen adults dropped by our cul de sac gathering ... had a nice fire going to cook hot dogs, marshmallows and the occasional Snickers bar . Assorted beverage too. Who knew they make chocolate wine?

Its sorta become our informal "meet your neighbors" event ..

We had 30-40, I'd guess. Cutest was the little girl who got upset (oops) when I told her brothers they looked scary and she thought I meant her, too...she was a princess.

Well over a hundred with as many plus parents. Most folks were sitting outside distributing candy and many a parent was seen to be carrying something in their hands. It was really awesome and the crowds at time amazing. My neighbors agree that saying a hundred is a low ball number.

Yeah we had them transported in with cars all over the place. Many came to trick or treat with friends but I think some just came because of the neighborhood. It is very family/kid oriented and very safe.

We had about 50 at the most. It was a big change from our last neighborhood, where we got between 800-900 in a couple hours. It was nice to be able to walk around with the kiddos and enjoy things a bit more.

We heard that we get this many... but we're towards the back down a long-ish cul-de-sac. There's not much incentive to walk all the way down there when only two other houses had lights on. Most of our visitors were being driven in cars. I think we ended up with about 55-60 overall. Not horrible numbers, but not the droves we thought we'd get. I'm sure our orange lights, luminaries, and pumpkins brought some of them down. I think next year we'll set up a table off the main drag. =0)
