Not a clue. Our city is messed up. They usually have it the weekend before Halloween.
And it was from 4-5 (in daylight). What kid wants to trick or treat in daylight? Part of the fun when I was younger and "trick or treated" was walking with my friends/family in the dark...seeing the Halloween decorations glowing in the night.
I understand it's safer and all that, but you got to have some fun sometimes. At least trick or treat could have been at dusk...like 5:30 to 6:30 or something. But what do I know??? lol
Location: midlothian Illinois just south of chicago

I'm sitting here at school in my office in full Indy gear as well, and it rules. Nothing beats coming to school/work dressed as Indy; makes the day much more entertaining, and the compliments have been fantastic so far!
Well, my Indy costume kicked major butt and I got oodles of compliments during the day. I only had one trick or treater come dressed as Indy, but he got a nice bonus . I had more action figures to hand out to those little Indys, but only one left my possession. Well, more for me I guess!
Oh, I came for the Indy costumes, saw some majorly nice T&A, and I leave happy. Great thread.
At the last minute (due to a mandatory costume requirement) I threw on an Indy outfit (something I said I'd never do) while my girl dressed as a Russian colonel, and we went out. People loved it and took all kinds of photos of us! Well, maybe they were taking more photos of my companion as she had nothing but a long skin tight leather jacket and a pair of tights...
It really wasn't like a "costume" as everything sort of fell into place. But I goes to show the Indy gear in certainly not meant for warm weather/indoor conditions!
Todd's new boots
a regular pair of brown/khaki pants
Todd's brown web belt
Todd's gun belt with Todd's holster and Wadeventure whip holder
my 8' 12 plait whip from Gus Caicedo (which rocks)
Magnoli bag with Wadeventure strap
Wested washed goat LC style jacket
a DP fedora (not a hat go so won't be getting anything more than that)
But it was the only Indy I noticed. People had a really good response and it was a good line with the girls to tell them they could play with the whip but I wouldn't let them see my gun! Oh, we walked into a Blockbuster dressed up and the manager gave us the Indy promo stuf they are going to be taking down soon, so that was cool and a good score.
