How do Palo Alto residents with kids celebrate Halloween? Do they go out trick-or-treating? Where? In their neighbourhood? In downtown? Does City organize a Parade of some sort where kids and pets could come in costumes?
I do not see many houses decorated around my neighbourhood. I moved from East Coast where Halloween is a big deal, residents get really creative, though there has been a strong tendency lately towards less scary stuff, but there is still plenty of non-scary Halloween themes.
