    Default Not one single trick or treater!

    Well we were disappointed tonight that not one trick or treater came to our home. maybe i'll do a light show next year to try to draw some in. several neighbors asked me to this year, now i wish i would have.

    We had about 20 or so kids on Saturday night (the local "announced" trick-or-treat day) and 3 on Sunday. One of the local neighborhoods boycotted trick-or-treat entirely because the local decision to have trick-or-treat on Saturday; it must have killed the mood for a lot of the parents about going out.

    The ones that stopped by, though did enjoy the light show.

    We only had about 25 in Cary... I did venture out to the local mall earlier on Sunday and found them lined up going in and out of the stores like drones. They call that the "safe" way to trick-or-treat, not going out and meeting your neighbors...

    Our last head count was 250, well thats how many bags we made up. Had to dig into the reserve after that (yea our candy) ... Had them stack piled up around the house watching, dancing, video taping, photo shooting our lights. HUGE success. Its our 1st year with LOR too, It can only get better.

    we never do have many show up----one of the neighbors stopped by with their child. Our church did "trunk or treat" saturday night and had a big turn out. thought about doing something for that, but no easy source of 120ac for my lights and controller.

    From what I've heard yes! My nephews came over to our home to T or T in the neighborhood and he heard people saying "hey you gotta go down the street to the house with all the lights" ... Definitely a booster
