Though it's long overdue, some props go to Austin Street stores for being much more prepared for the kids this year.
You'll remember last year's disaster where "No Candy!" signs were posted at 4pm. This year, storekeepers were waving kids in, plenty of candy was available, and the houses around the area were fantastic.
100% improvement over last year. Maybe next year we'll have a Halloween parade. Personally, I'd sacrifice a street fair for that.
