What’s the Best Neighborhood for Trick-or-Treating?

What area is known for going 'all out' for Halloween? Where can a kid with an insatiable sweet tooth clean up?

The rescheduled Trick-or-Treat runs 5-8 p.m. on Saturday night in Hamilton and Wenham. And in any town, there are always those streets and neighborhoods known for great trick-or-treating – “King-Size” candy, high participation rate among houses, doors close together, decorations, lots of other kids and maybe a haunted house or two.

What are these streets and neighborhoods in Hamilton and Wenham? 

Let us know by posting a comment below.

Many households did not participate as they thought Halloween was Halloween.

Anyone who cancelled their plans (like we did) to stay home an hand out candy... And we had a total of 3 groups stop by... Waste of time, money and candy

The spirit of Halloween resides on Mill St. Anyone who's been has seen it and knows, anyone who hasn't, come by and see next year.Thirty five on Halloween, 135 last night. Full size candy bars and some seriously spooky decor.

My family was so disappointed that the town cancelled Halloween that we went to a neighboring town to enjoy trick or treat on the 31st. No big deal right? Problem was that despite the (dumb) decision made by morons with some power in Hamilton, to not have Halloween on the 31st, people still trick or treated on the 31st causing a very embarrassing problem at my home, no candy to hand out! I postponed getting bags of treats until Friday after work because this town shut down Halloween on the 31st. So on Halloween night the 30 or so kids that still came to my home had to be told to please come back on Saturday because we just didn't have candy to give out! This showed me how really dumb people in Hamilton politics are. My wife and I both have common sense to not bring our children to places in town that might be dangerous and I feel that other parents in Hamilton are just as protective of their kids. Couldn't the police chief, selectmen and town manager just as easily discuss the issues and made a list of areas that might not be safe to trick or treat instead of overreacting as they did?

Dear Richard (and others): I assume because you are able to post your comment that you have access to the Internet? You do realize this storm is historic for our country? That hundreds of thousands of people still have no power with another storm bearing down on them? That people died, that thousands are permanently homeless? That the elected officials in our towns are not here to keep you happy but to keep you safe? That one child getting hurt on Halloween would not only have been an avoidable tragedy for our towns but also a huge financial liability for all taxpayers? You do realize, all of you commenting, that this is not about you and not about candy but about all of us and about something larger than a silly holiday, right? People died. And you are complaining about being embarrassed in front of a bunch of children. Please, please stop posting about Halloween; it makes all of us look so so horribly self-involved and clueless. Don't we have any sense of the world outside our zip codes?
