Looking for Good Place to Go Trick or Treating

I live in the Carrollton area and I am looking for a place to take my girls Trick or Treating. I live in an apartment complex so I am looking for a neighborhood with houses. I am willing to go into Coppell or some parts of Lewisville.

What can I do next?

Central Park in Lewisville is hosting a trick or treat path. The local businesses will be lining the walking path and they will be passing out candy. I am new to the area but this sounds like a big event and a safe place for the kids.

S.,
You did not mention what part of Carrollton you live close to, but there is Country Place that is lies between the intersections of Marsh and Keller Springs and Marsh and Belt Line Road. Great place to trick or treat. Lots of homes.
Anyhow, Happy Trick or Treating!! :-)

I agree they're too young, but I also have to echo the earlier post about the dislike of "drop off" trick or treaters. We don't live in a "rich" neighborhood so we don't get a bunch, but I sort of resent the ones we do because I view it as my opportunity to get to know the kids in the neighborhood!! Also, from your child's perspective, you're supposed to get to know your neighbors. What's wrong with trick or treating in an apartment complex??

I found a list of places so I could take my kids...

The best neighborhoods are Castle Hills on Hebron.

S.,
If you want to avoid all the excess walking around, you are welcome to attend our Fall Festival. We are off Hwy 121 at Huffines Blvd. It is at:

Grace Church
4020 Nazarene Drive
Carrollton, TX
###-###-####

The event will be on Friday, October 31st from 7pm - 9pm. We'll have games, prizes, and candy. If you need more details, feel free to contact the church directly.

First Baptist Church of Carrollton has a great Fall Festival Halloween night 5:30 - 8:30. They give candy at each station, lots of fun and safe. The only thing you pay for is food - concessions by Chick-Fil-A, resonably priced.

Why not attend a local school fair.

What in the world are you doing taking those babies trick or treating??????? Look I mean no disrespect but you should most certainly not be giving your babies candy at this age. It could easily cause insulin resistance in the future which you really dont want for your daughters. Not to mention their teeth. Lets face it you are the one that wants to go trick or treating! It is so much fun! I think you better haul yourself over to Highland Park or Swiss Avenue. There is so much to see and you can skip the candy!
