Are your kinds planning to Trick-or-Treat in condos? First, check the regulations!
Kids are eager to wear their Halloween costumes for one of the sweetest events of the year (and possibly the older crowd too, we're not judging who's out there donning a getup to get that candy)! Whether gearing up to be something modern like The Red Imposter, or a classic like the cutest pumpkin ever, check your condo's regulations to ensure that the evening is all treats without unpleasant tricks!
To avoid disappointment, please find out from your property manager what the corporation's rules are for Halloween. Generally, buildings don't allow door-to-door trick-or-treating, though some will hand out candy at the concierge desk or in the main lobby. Townhouse complexes tend to be a bit more likely to welcome door-to-door trick-or-treating.
For those celebrating Halloween (or other holidays!), you may be temped to put up some decorations on your door (or the area around it, including the hallway and/or exterior entryway), windows, or balconies. Many corporations also have rules around such decorations, so be sure to double-check with management for this, too!
Regardless of corporation type, be safe rather than sorry (especially during Halloween - where safety extends beyond condo and includes adequate supervision of young children and inspection of treats before consumption) and check in with management before you decorate to celebrate and head out for bagfuls of candy!

Hope your Halloween is sweet!
P.S. If you're a Property Manager or a Property Management Company, consider proactively emailing your communities a reminder as to the relevant Halloween regulations for that property, including:
(1) what residents and visitors may or may not do (for both decorations and trick-or-treating), (2) whether the corporation will be handing out treats, and
(3) where residents/visitors may go and the times for any corporation-hosted events/treat distribution.
