About twenty years ago we were driving through and they were giving house tours. There were crowds of people on the sidewalks and residents were inviting people into their homes. I don't know if they still do this.

Baltimore's neighborhoods have always been that way. There are only some neighborhoods and some people who have given Baltimore the bad reputation.

As stated I went last year for the first time and I saw none of that. I spent a good bit of time there on that night too.

For those that went inside the houses in the past, was it decorated like the outside? Showing off their decorated tree? I find it bit strange those homeowners would let strangers into their house like that.
