It’s Halloween today, which means that kids and parents will storm the sidewalks of Cortland Ave to trick or treat at the many retail shops and candy-friendly homes flanking the main drag.
Since we don’t get a ton of trick-or-treaters at our house, we usually head to the corner of Cortland and Moultrie by the library to pass out candy. This year we’ll be there starting between 5:30 and 6:00pm with full-size candy bars, a spooky soundtrack of the best Halloween songs, and some pretty killer Bernal Hype stickers:
Aside from our little Bernal Hype trick or treat pop-up, most shops along Cortland give out candy as well (or in the case of Good Life, candy and apples). Pinhole has already posted that their organic candy hand-out begins at 5:30pm.
In addition to businesses, Next Door has a treat map where houses can opt in to appear on the map if they will be giving out candy. Just taking a look at the map as of this morning, there are a good number of houses within a block or two of Cortland that will be handing out the goods as well:
Please stop by and say hey this evening, and remember to stay safe out there as Cortland does not close down to traffic during the Halloween festivities.
