Does anyone know when Carrboro is going to be doing trick or treating for Halloween? Is it actually going to be on Halloween?

Also... Being new in town, I'm not sure where would be the best place to go.

Suggestions?

It's always on Halloween in every town in the Triangle.

What part of Carrboro do you live in? Certainly some of the larger neighborhoods like Lake Hogan Farms have some great trick or treating.

I'm a couple blocks from Carrboro Elementary School.

Anything that would give us a lot of houses to hit in a short amount of time would be best... not sure how long the little ones can hang!

Thanks for your input!

We used to live in downtown Carrboro and found the Oak-Ashe/Weaver-Shelton boundary to be pretty spotty, due to the high proportion of renters. If you go in this area, you'll want to be out on the early side. I would probably advise going somewhere else, like a subdivision, if you're looking for quality trick or treating.

Thanks martyhuggins! Can you recommend any good subdivisions to check out?

The Cedars and Bel Arbor are newer subdivisions close to downtown and very walkable.

You can make a big haul in Wexford or Cates Farm area. The houses are closer together than Lake Hogan. It is a good idea to avoid places filled with renters. They usually don't participate even if they have small children.

I think Oak, Shelton, etc, would be fine. I don't think there are a lot of renters there any more. My kid goes to Carrboro Elementary and many of her classmates live in the neighborhood. Your own neighborhood may be fine. Are there kids in it? Usually we get a lot of participation in the CH/C area. I have a friend who lives in the Windwood neighborhood off Poplar and they always seem to have a lot of fun.

Weaver St is having their Halloween party this Friday if you want to check that out. It's usually pretty popular.

Just wanted to clarify that I am referring to Oak, Shelton, Poplar, Lindsay, etc, and not Oak, Pine, Cheek. There are two different Oaks about 4 blocks from each other.
