The parking lot by the little train station is good, as long as you get there early enough. If we went again, I would probably get there early and picnic in the park (or go to the Japanese Tea Garden if you've never been) before the event started.

Yes quite a few churches on the north side of town are having little festivals with rides, games, candy, bouncey houses etc. I live in a small gated neighborhood off of Tezel/ Culebra that is open on Halloween for trick or treat. My niece was two last year and it's like the perfect sized walk for a little one. I believe the SA zoo still has Zoo Boo as well.

Unfortunately in today's world you almost have to go to another neighborhood to trick or treat. Very few houses actually give out candy now in comparison to when I was a kid. Me and my family go all out for Halloween with yard decorations and this year a controllable scare prop. We pass out full size candy bars to the kids that do come by, which the majority come via vehicle. I can't blame them no one decorates or leaves porch lights on and it's very obvious that we celebrate. Last year we went through 120 full size bars and our emergency fun sized bags, this year we bought 180 and still fully expect to run out.

We deal with the older kids who are not dressed up by giving them the fun sized as well, we are not grinches at all, but all we ask is a little effort. Luckily for us we live in north central neighborhood that doesn't get heavy traffic for out of area kids. last year we had about 150 and our back neighbors we share a fence with got 10, so it's very obvious what is going on.

Just saw this, is now 5 bucks, was free if you brought non perishable food items by yesterday.

Still sounds good, we may stop there after the Quarry and before our trick treating journey! Thanks, didn't know this place existed.

Happy Halloween y'all, stay safe out there tonight!!

This brings me to wonder, do gated developments leave gates open? We live out in boonies so we go to Huebner area as we are familiar there and have friends there. However we are closer to some gated areas but don't wanna intrude, lol.

Thanks! Cdf says I have to "spread some reputation around before giving it to you". Sounds filthy, but consider yourself repped sb
