Nextdoor launched their annual Treat Map, an interactive local guide where neighbors can share how they are celebrating Halloween. Handing out candy? Dish the details on the king size candy bars, allergy-free treats, and other goodies you’ll be giving away. Decorating your home? Share photos of your ghostly display with your Treat Map pin, so your neighbors know to check it out. Business owners can also utilize the app to showcase their Halloween promotions and events. New for 2023, users can also explore neighborhoods outside their own to find the most popular places and most spirited streets for Halloween fun. “When Halloween falls on a weeknight night, families are finding new ways to make the most of this once-a-year celebration. From visiting local business centers or community events to joining friends and family in their neighborhoods, families are eager to plan a fun, efficient school night Halloween,” said Emma Mandolino, Head of Nextdoor CREATE. “With the ability to search the Treat Map for any neighborhood, we’re giving neighbors the opportunity to prepare, plan, and enjoy the ultimate Halloween.”
