Nice to see kids dressing up and enjoying Halloween. We seem to get mostly get older kids with no costumes. They're nice enough, but it's not Halloween or any fun. Every year we get fewer younger ones in costumes. Can't remember the last time I wore my werewolf mask to great anyone and my wife doesn't even bother to decorate anymore.

Nice pictures, looks like they had fun! Oddly we never get any kids "spooking" around here anymore. In 2010 we had like 2 kids come to the door and last year we had none, I used to have to buy 3-4 bags of candy and pretty much camp out a the door because we had so many.
I think most take them to family and the mall to get candy from the clerks at the stores as it's safer, sign of the times I guess.

With a title like trunk or treat, I thought you were from Jersey and anyone who didn't give the kids a treat got stuffed in the trunk. 24

Looked like fun, glad you had a good time.

Thank you ladies and gents for the complements on the kids Smile

Since moving over here I've come to enjoy Halloween (especially have two young children), in the UK when I was growing up Guy Fawkes Night (Bonfire Night) was a much bigger! deal...

We still get quiet a lot of kids in costumers coming round our sub-division on Halloween night, we probably spend about 3 hours camped outside handing out candy and playing creepy music...

celestino, Trunk or Treat is organised by the local school Alpha son goes to, last night was the 5th Trunk or Treat we've been to (Beta son was a pumpkin in the wife's tummy during the 1st Trunk or Treat event we attended). To help raise money for the school they charge $10 per car (you must have a child attending the school to get a ticket). Cars (you're encouraged to decorate your car) park up in the school park, open up their trunks and hand out candy to all the (school) kids (dressed up in Halloween costumers) walking around. The local fire department is also there with a fire engine, there's a hay-ride, and in the school gymnasium they show "spooky" (kid friendly) films.
