Nope, not for Halloween. The scare mongers (no pun intended) and churches pretty much did away with the door to door neighborhood thing. We used to get a ton of kids. Last few years you could have counted on one hand the kids that came trick or treating. Don't even think the town has a costume contest any longer.

kids do trick or treat still in granite but most of the time it is to churches and rich homes. i dont blame ppl for not taking kids door to door unless it is friends or family because there are to many crazy drug heads in GF

Granite Falls is a fabulous place to live. I love how you can walk around town. I think for its size it has a lot going on. I no longer live there but my parents get hundreds of trick or treaters. We always enjoy the tree lighting ceremony and the Christmas parade. I pretty much always feel safe in Granite Falls. The schools are nice, comparatively speaking. Everything is convient to Granite Falls...Hickory, Charlotte, the mountains. People are generally very friendly.

^^^Well said, Selina. Small town feel with all the bigger town amenities a short drive away. Downtown Granite Falls has been much improved over the last couple of years as well.

I just recently moved back down to the area. It isn't on main street so to speak, but I love where I am. No aggrivation with fighting traffic, and no putting up with close neighbors. Granite Falls has my vote!

Regarding trick-or-treating... my parents'neighborhood gets loads of trick or treaters, always have. At Christmas, there is the tree lighting ceremony. I don't understand Topix. It could be a great resource but instead it is filled with garbage and people more uneducated and brainless than I seriously knew was possible. I generally like my town and the people in it, but trolls always take over Topix to the point that it is nearly useless.
