Any news on what night the children should be trick-or-treating for Halloween? Since Halloween falls on a Monday this year, have the cities decided on a weekend night or will the kids just go door to door on the actual holiday?

I remember last year we were spending a week in PCB just about Halloween time….. some of the big condo’s has placed carved pumpkins up and lighted in the evening.
I thought how very odd to see these scary pumpkins in PCB especially right in front of the ocean. I guess I’ve always thought of PCB as an endless summer, beautiful beach kinda place when indeed you do have your “Seasons” just as we do.
Hope everyone’s Halloween is a safe & happy one!

Actually the Gulf of Mexico is considered a sea and a section of the Atlantic Ocean. But, since I have been enjoying PCB since my birth I was raised calling it the ocean. What of it?
Is this the “best” you can question me about….. I find your remark quite nutty & a waste. lol lol
