Last year we counted 359 wee visitors to our stoop during Halloween evening. This year we didn’t bother (there were too many to count… it was, quite literally, overwhelming).
However, we did give away 17 pounds of candy this year (up from 14 last year) plus a butt-load of small decks of playing cards, which M got at Costco. Given the ratio of candy:kids that we had last year plus the addition of the non-candy treats, I calculate that we had upwards of 500 trick-or-treaters at the door.
2010 highlight: a neighbor down the street was offering candy or brussels sprouts. I actually saw a few kids taking the latter, though I hope they didn’t eat them.
