Halloween is less than a week away and one Ballardite is hoping families don’t forget residential streets for trick-or-treating. “The merchant trick-or-treating event is fine,” John emails us, “but I’d love to see families actually going door to door.”

John created this Google map — which you can edit — to add your house or block if it’s a good spot for trick-or-treaters. “I think this might be a good way to rally the neighborhood and focus attention on traditional trick-or-treating, instead of the commercial version we’ve got these days,” he says, “I know there are great streets for trick-or-treating, but I think encouragement is really needed.”
As a reminder, the Market Street trick-or-treating event is from 3 to 5 p.m. on Sunday and the Halloween on Holman event is from 1 to 4 p.m. That leaves a lot of time in the evening to go door to door.
