The BEST Time To Go Trick-Or-Treating In SWFL

Halloween is one week away!  The night time temperatures have cooled down in the last week or so, making it more comfortable to get outside.  There are so many fun things to do this time of year, pumpkin patches and haunted walks and soon Trick-Or-Treating.  So, what is the best time to to Trick-Or-Treat in SWFL?

The team at Vivint gathered sunset data from the Almanac to help us figure out just that.  This should help parents make a decision as to what time is best to hit the neighborhood streets on Halloween night.

Many Southeastern states have the latest sunsets on Halloween

Actually, our neighbors to the north in Jacksonville hold the #4 spot for the latest sunset on Halloween at 6:41pm.  Here in SWFL we can also expect the sun to set around the same time on Halloween. So, if you like to wait for dark before going door to door, you should be ready by about 6:30pm or so to go Trick-Or-Treating in SWFL.

Vivint collected sunset data from the Almanac to help parents decide when their children should start trick-or-treating this year.
