Are your Kids ready to go out Trick or Treating?

Now that you have the all the fun Fall Festivals to attend, the Best Pumpkin Patches to Visit, and some Fun Halloween Event for Kids, how about the top Plano, Texas neighborhoods to go trick or treating?

Covid Update – be sure to check before going as some neighborhoods or homes may not be fully decorating or handing out candy as in previous years.

Best Neighborhoods to trick or treat in Plano, TX Collin County //

There are some areas around town that go all out and make it so much fun for kids.

Many local families will also be participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project. Lots of kids have very serious, life-threatening food allergies. Those kids often either have to give away all of their candy or they don’t go trick-or-treating at all. (Even if the candy doesn’t contain the allergen, the risk of cross-contamination with most candies is very serious.) 

To take part, put a teal pumpkin out on your porch to indicate to trick-or-treaters that you have non-food treats available. We have some ideas for choices here.

You can also register your home address (only if you want to do that; many people do not) so people can find the houses in their neighborhoods where it is safe for those children to collect goodies. And if your kids do need a Teel Pumpkin, check for a map of those who register that they are open to Trick or Treaters.

The Top Plano Neighborhoods to Go Trick or Treating

Singletree Tr. 75023 (NW corner of Parker/Independence)

Note: Some of the houses are not participating this year

This mainly consists of one house who some call ‘The Halloween House,’ but the street is nuts! There is usually one house that goes above and beyond that it’s decor literally takes up nearly 3 houses worth. The entire street may be blocked off and even if you don’t come trick or treat that night it’s a must stop or stare at!

All the neighbors sit outside and pass out candy. A DJ tops the night with fun Halloween music. You do not want to miss this house! We go every year and it does not disappoint.

Canterbury Drive 75075 (near Park/Independence)

Note: Some of the houses are not participating this year

This is a fun street that is almost directly across the street from Plano Senior High School. Several neighbors work together to create fun scenes/themes in the front yard. Kids from all over always want to come to Canterbury court! Some can be scary wearing a kids best costume (just FYI) but it’s all in good fun for kids. The neighbors and atmosphere are great. This place can get VERY crowded so be prepared for lots of people and kids.

Tearose Drive near Bluegrass Drive

This year’s theme is the Alien Invasion. Expect the full effect from October 28th! You’ll see some really creepy, glowing extra-terrestrial experiments on display.

Trick or Treating in Plano

R Avenue near 15th Place

We are short on Haunted Houses in the area, and the Dark Hour Haunted House is closed on Halloween Night (October 31). So any Haunted Mansion themes are welcomed! This one is inspired by the Disney ride, with a skeleton driving an old-fashioned carriage, creepy portraits, a 12-ft. skeleton, frightening jack-o’-lanterns and many scary creatures.

Deerfield Subdivision

Note: Some of the houses are not participating this year

Though this neighborhood is mostly known for the best Christmas lights, some Moms tell us they are prepared for all the trick or treaters as well. No big street parties that we know of, but a fun and safe place to go trick or treating here.

Trunk or Treat in Plano

For little ones with shorter attention, trunk or treat maybe a most suitable Halloween celebration. Trunk or Treat events typically take place in a single parking lot or building and children are invited to dress in costumes and collect candy in an easy to navigate and low-stress atmosphere.

Trunk or Treat is perfect for children under the age of 5 or those who might need additional help navigating the streets during traditional trick or treating.

Check out these local Halloween events, many of which have Trunk or Treat options.

Trick-or-Treating Basics

Kids under age 12 should:

  • always go trick-or-treating with an adult
  • know how to call 911 in case they get lost
  • know their home phone number or your cell phone number if you don’t have a landline

Older kids who go out on their own should:

  • know their planned route and when they’ll be coming home
  • carry a cell phone
  • go in a group and stay together
  • only go to houses with porch lights on
  • stay away from candles and other flames
  • know to never go into strangers’ homes or cars

For all kids:

  • According to Safe Kids Worldwide, the risk of kids being hit by a car is higher on Halloween than on any other day of the year. So make sure all kids:
    • walk on sidewalks on lit streets (never through alleys or across lawns)
    • walk from house to house (never run) and always walk facing traffic when walking on roads
    • cross the street at crosswalks and never assume that vehicles will stop
  • Give kids flashlights with fresh batteries. Kids may also enjoy wearing glow sticks as bracelets or necklaces.
  • Limit trick-or-treating to your neighborhood and the homes of people you know.

When kids get home:

  • Help them check all treats to make sure they’re sealed. Throw out candy with torn packages or holes in the packages, spoiled items, and any homemade treats that weren’t made by someone you know.

Halloween and trick or treating in Plano Texas are one of the most fun, happiest times of the year for kids. We hope you enjoy the festivities!
