a quick post

I survived Trick or Treat but not on the Street, praise the Lord! I left my house this morning at 8:45 am and returned home at 9:45 pm. I thought it would be later than that, but when I came back to clean up after dropping my families off there was virtually nothing left to do.

All in all it was a successful night. Last year was great, but I think we topped it this year by adding a couple more booths and also a haunted castle. I was in charge of the haunted castle along with another adult. It ultimately boiled down to me being mostly responsible for it because lets face it, that's what happens 90% of the time. To be fair, my partner in crime had a sick kid today and she was there through most of it. My senior high youth were fantastic, I was a little wary at first (cell phones outlawed beginning next week) but we made it through, were quite scary, and they really had a great time doing it. I spent most of the night leading tours through the haunted house/castle/forest/laboratory, making sure that all of it stayed together well and helping the little kids who were too scared.

I heard multiple times that this was the best trick or treat event that anyone had ever been to, and that to me is success. We do this event not as a fundraiser but as a gift to the community. By my estimates, I would guess that throughout the night we had well over 200 people there. The room was packed up until the end. It was certainly a blast. Now it is time to go and sleep like a rock.
