Every year in my neighborhood we have a Halloween parade for small children that starts at 4pm. This is so the can safely trick or treat along a set route before it gets dark.
We’ve been doing this for 7 years and we keep saying it will be Alex’s last year because she is getting older but we just don’t want to miss it.
The parade is also a lot of fun. The kids are adorable and a lot of the parents dress up.

The parade ends on a block that has a party where everyone gathers and there are tables of goodies set up for the children and the adults.
After the parade is over we head out trick or treating. A block behind our house is a place that sets up a huge haunted house every year. So many people go to it that there is always a long line and the police block off two blocks of the street. This year was especially fun because two woman dressed up like zombies and danced with the kids to Thriller.

It was very warm on Halloween and it rained off and on but we had SO much fun. It was the most fun I had on Halloween in a long time.
How about you? How was your Halloween? Did you dress up?
