Your 2014 Guide to Trick or Treating (and Trunk or Treating) in Huntsville

Let’s view this from a child’s perspective. You get to dress up as anything you want (pirate, princess, superhero, ghost, whatever) which is already super cool. THEN you get to go door-to-door (or car-to-car, or table-to-table) and collect candy! It’s like finding a secret wormhole that takes to you to a wonderland that is obviously run by kids. Whatever your age, Halloween is pretty cool and if you’re looking for places to collect some candy then look no further.

Do you know of one we missed? We’d love to add it, just send us a note at and be sure to include the information listed here (e.g. Date/Time, Cost, URL, Location).
