Halloween Fun for Little Kids at Galena Park Branch Library

BooApaloozaDo you trick-or-treat when the sun is still out? My kids are daytime trick-or-treaters and I am not ashamed to admit it. Yes, my neighbors look at me funny when I knock on their door at five in the afternoon, but what else am I supposed to do? I have tried to trick-or-treat at night and it has always led to children crying. Dragging three kids from house to house for a piece of candy is not worth it, at least not for me. We have also tried to sell the, “Let’s just pass out candy this year” concept, just to end up being the ‘bad’ parents that would not let their kids trick or treat.
