We have a long driveway, about a quarter of a mile. And for years, few people would make the trek down. So we have adopted a mini-tradition.
We fill the car up with local apple cider donuts, cider, candy and the dog. We drive up to the top of the driveway, and open the back. Within a few minutes, friends and neighbors gather around. We pass out food and drink, see the costumes, and catch up.
We do it early, as a pre-Trick or Treating family activity, so not to cut into the door-to-door time of the kids on a mission. It has a low-key, tailgating feel, and each year seems to get bigger.
