Trick or Treat

Hi! I am new to the Fairmount neighborhood and am trying to figure out when trick or treating is. I gathered from Google that it's on the 31st but have not been able to find out what time. Could someone please help me out? Thanks!

  • A friend of mine who lives in Fairmount and takes his kids every year said It'll start before it gets dark, around 4:00-ish, but a lot of parents work and might not be home yet. He said he also usually gets a bunch of older kids and adults not in costumes come up and ask for candy, and that he went through a ton of candy last year.

  • Ok thanks. I don't get home from work until 6:30 so guess I should request to leave a little early!

  • It depends on your block. Ask your neighbors. On my block we have dozens of neighbors sitting on our stoops awaiting the hundreds of kids who come each year. Usually 5 o'clock to 8 o'clock is the time for the trickortreating.
