Trick or Treaters

We had 64 creatures of the night visit us last night and they were mostly young children. It was an excellent night for Trick or Treating - not too cold, no rain, and no wind. I think all had a parent or adult with them. I think the 64 number was good considering how few people on our end of the street participate in Trick Or Treat. There was only a couple parents who allowed their children to race thru our flowerbed and across our lawn to our porch instead of using the sidewalks. No doubt they will grow up to become the trash their parents are. Most all said "thank you" when given their treat.

Back in the 1950's and 1960's Delmar would have a large Halloween party uptown. It would attract between a thousand to three thousand people. I suppose the High School event has taken the place of this party.
