It's no trick -- more places to get treats in Batavia

posted by Bonnie Marrocco in batavia, Halloween, trick-or-treat.

The houses on Ellicott Avenue are decorated, the sidewalks are wide and the atmosphere is fun and focused on trick-or-treaters. It’s more like a street party and it’s known for its decorations and generous candy distribution. However, the crowds can be overwhelming.

While everyone’s there, why not treat those little ghosts and goblins to other neighborhoods throughout the community where residents are doling out just as much candy and tons of it goes uncollected?

Batavia has plenty of places that offer families a Halloween treat in their hunt for the ever-elusive full-size candy bar. Here are a few streets to try:

  • North Side -- Hart, Douglas, Fairmont, Tracy
  • South Side -- Jackson, Osterhout, Otis, Williams
  • East Side -- East, Vine, Elm, Woodcrest
  • West Side -- Montclair, Kingsbury, Vernon, Union (I know someone on Montclair who is giving out full-size candy bars.).

There are many good places in the city to visit this Halloween and they’re all good bets. Just look around you! These neighborhoods are filled with lots of friendly families and you won’t be disappointed.

Did we miss your favorite place to trick-or-treat in Batavia? Share the information in the comments below.

Hours to go door-to-door in the city are 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight. Happy Halloween!
