OVERHEARD ON THE WEB: Trick or Treat tips
The Log recently asked its Facebook friends what neighborhood has the best candy/Halloween spirit in Destin? Here is what they had to say.
Julie Theiss: I live in Emerald Lakes, and we have the good stuff. Bring it on trick or treaters! Don't make me eat all this candy! Cause I will!
Belinda Bishop: Kell-Aire has a lot of fun for kids. So come on out.
Melissa Mangum-Houston: Kell-Aire! There's even a haunted cave on Holly Street.
Katherine Loper: We trick or treat from 6 to 8 p.m. in Indian Bayou.
Sara Maurchie: You know what's sad. How many people drive their cars around instead of walking. What ever happened to physical activity? When I was younger we were out for hours and hours walking miles and miles to get our candy. It was some of my best memories. No cell phones. Nothing. Just good memories with friends and family. I would say no offense to people who drive their kids around house to house, but honestly I cant because in my opinion there's no excuse! Get active, go outside, walk, earn that candy, and have fun! Any neighborhood in Destin is pretty safe. Us locals are lucky to live in such a safe and wonderful town with great people so I’d say anywhere really! Just make sure to walk and get the kids out and moving!
Chrissy Nyc: Destiny Worship Center gives lasting memories, games, candy and Spirit on a whole new level. It provides an outdoor carnival that is open Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to the community as a Halloween alternative. Kids will win free candy and prizes at the 25 carnival games. There will also be free inflatables, Bungee jumps, and a rock wall with live music and square dancing.
Cindy Peterson Johnson: Come to the Hallelujah Bash at the First Baptist Church of Destin at 201 Beach Street. We will have games, candy, hot dogs, cotton candy, slides, etc. Starts at 5:30 and runs until 7:30. Fun for all and FREE.
John Lomax: They should go to a public place or to their own neighborhood. I think it's tacky and wrong to take your kids trick or treating in someone else's neighborhood. My god what's wrong with people these days?
Denise Marie: I disagree with that. We live on old Cahoun and the drives are long and dark and creepy. If I had little ones, we would go where there were other families rather than a long dark street that were lights were out mostly. What's a few more kids anyways?
Tamara Baker: Kell-Aire Gardens. We rock Halloween. They trailer the kiddies in. Bring it on we are ready. There is even a haunted front yard!
Kimberly Summers: Primrose Lane and then Indian Bayou then Kell-aire
Denise Marie: Heck, I don't even have a kid in the fight, and I'm thinking of going to Kell-Aire just to watch the shenanigans!
