October is one of those months filled with nostalgia. For me, many of those memories focus on Halloween.
I had so many awesome costumes throughout the years, from 50’s poodle skirt girls to Ms. Frizzle, and Trick or Treat was always a highlight of my entire year.
Halloween in Columbus can sometimes feel like a gamble. You never know whether you’ll have decent weather or if you’ll be bundling the kids up in sweatsuits and coats under their perfectly planned contest. But luckily, no matter what the weather is, the kiddos will be rewarded with candy!
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) issued guidelines several years ago that set the dates for Trick or Treat in Central Ohio. When Halloween falls on Monday-Thursday, trick or treating is held on October 31. When Halloween falls on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, it’s held the Thursday prior to Oct. 31.
