I admit, I miss the days when we'd go traipsing around our neighborhood on Halloween night. I'd always wait until it got dark because it was more fun then. Funny how I was never afraid to knock on someone's door to ask for candy, but if I had to go around doing the fundraiser stuff I was petrified, LOL.
But it seemed to have died off as I became an adult. You don't see as many kids around as you did back in the "old days." We take our son trick or treating, because we want him to have those memories. The only difference is we go when it's still light (for various reasons). May take him to an event as well, but not instead of. I want him to experience it all.
He went trick or treating last year for the first time, but could not say 'trick or treat' (but he did say 'thank you'). Now he can, and I think it will be a whole new experience for him.
What do you do?

I grew up on a Ranch with no neighbors for miles, so my mom always drove us to town and let us walk through a neighborhood where we knew people. We have done all different combinations with our kids in the past. A couple of times we just went to events. Last year we just walked through our neighborhood and the kids had a great time. We moved this year, so I don't know what to expect in our new neighborhood. Also, Halloween is on a Sunday this year, and that may have some sort of effect. I expect we'll attend at least one event the Friday or Saturday before and then walk the neighborhood on Sunday. I think my little ones are really going to enjoy whatever we do this year!
