Sounds busy AND fun!
My kids think they are too old to dress up and go door to door. My youngest wanted this really intricate face paint that one of the members had posted
on here not long ago but, I can't find the post/thread.
I tell them all of the time, don't rush being a grown up. We just make it look fun, it isn't!
The local churches around the area do what is called a "trunk or treat" and members of their congregations park in a line/circle and hand out candy
and such. Of course they hand out the usual "come to our church" brochures.
The idea behind it was to keep children off of the streets.
We used to have a parade down main street but a few years back some kids (not our local ones) had gotten hurt or maybe killed (I can't remember) by
the floats. Businesses and different organizations/clubs would throw candy toward the sidewalk from their floats and kids would run and grab it up.
That practice is no more. It may be banned across the state too. Don't quote me though!
My girls will want to go walking around the neighborhood, for sure, to scare themselves and I'm not real sure how late I want them out.
It is Halloween, a Saturday night, a pay week for many folks, and the first of the month.
One of my S.O.'s cop buddies told him yesterday at work "this weekend on duty is going to be fun!".
My S.O told him "yeah if you're a cop who also happens to be an a$$!"
They have bantered back and forth like that for years...
Hope to see more art work soon! Don't let ours be the ONLY representation!
