I just moved into a condo and I never thought about it until I was at the store the other day with halloween candy on my grocery list (for an upcoming halloween themed party for my little one as well as for trick or treating) Then, I thought about it…would tric or treaters even come to my house (the exterior doors are locked but at the same time I am on the first floor and could sit on my patio….What are your thoughts?

@Waitingbee57: I think your safest bet is to ask your neighbors if they usually get them!

We live in one too. The kids will ring the outside buzzers til someone lets them in. We didn’t have a whole lot last yr bc of Hurricane Sandy – Halloween was technically cancelled. But I am going to get a bunch this year bc there are a lot of kids in the community we live in.

I live in a condo and we havent had people trick or treat here…to awkward to continuously run up the stairs.

I live in a condo but the set up is more similar to townhouses, I bought candy last year and we didn’t have any trick or treaters. I’ll probably still get a small bag of something just in case 🙂

Ask your neighbors. Itll depend on your community. I lived in one where no one came at all, and a friend lived in one where there were tons of kids who stopped by.

My apartment building had us sign up for trick-or-treating. But definitely check with your neighbors!

I live in an apartment building and I’ve never gotten trick-or-treaters. The candy gets eaten by me and FH and I end up putting extra time at the gym to make me feel less guilty about eating all of the junk.
Best bet is to do as PP said and check with the neighbours.

I live in an apartment building & get very few trick or treaters. We take dd trick or treating around my moms house & make little bags of candy for our neighbors kids. I still buy candy for the kids that come before & after we leave. Dd is young so we’re not out too long with her.

I don’t Halloween as an adult. It’s so annoying! Getting up 100 times a night to answer the door is just not that fun. We live in a house so it’s kind of unavoidable unless we pretend we aren’t home. Which we might do this year. But in a condo, I wouldn’t bother at all. Save yourself the trouble! Or just buy the candy and eat it all yourself 😉

@Pinkmoon: I love handing out candy. All the kids look so cute in their costumes but it just never occured to me that we might not have trick or treaters.

I think I am just going to put out a bowl of candy on my patio and call it a day. If people take from it then so be it..if not we have treat candy for my son…(and us of course)
