Trick or Treating for Halloween in Chelsea takes place from 4:00 until 6 p.m. (Don't ask me.... I agree that it's a strange time, and awfully inconvenient for working parents, too. When I was a kid we didn't even *start* trick or treating until after dinner.) Afterwards, there is a party on the lawn of the McKune Memorial Library, sponsored by the Chelsea Kiwanis. This is the new location for the annual that previously took place in the Common Grill parking lot.
This year we are going to try something a little different than hitting up neighbors for goodies. We plan to trick or treat our way downtown Chelsea to meet some friends, check out Cole Funeral Home and local merchants, then spend some time at the party at the library. Up until this year, my children have not had enough stamina for all that fun -- YES... it was the kids, not me who got tired first (for once). So it will be fun to try something new.

I know there are a lot of lurkers that read my blog. Now's your chance come out of hiding and add a comment. What are you and/or your kids doing for Halloween this year? More importantly, what is your favorite Halloween treat? Me? I love Almond Joys and anything with dark chocolate. :-p
