In addition to the map, we also plan on having balloons marking the addresses participating making it easier for the Trick-or-Treaters to know where to go! Be sure to decorate and ask your neighbors to join you and make an evening of it with food and beverages for yourselves. Let’s be a neighborhood known for this annual tradition.
