ITS A SPOOKY HALLOWEEN IN THE HAMPTONS..Greetings Hamptons MouthPiece readers
…sorry it’s been a week since I last posted, so much is happening in my life that has me running all over the place and therefore it has been difficult to focus on writing something worth reading. .I must admit I love looking at the Village annual Halloween outrageous parade (see last years pictures)..
..I would prefer staying in the Hamptons however, there is a wonderful vibe and I feel safe….I really love this small town I live in especially during Halloween, it reminds us all the joy of being a kid. I love how all of the the stores and the homeowners really get into the Halloween spirit and the hundreds of kids that come knocking on your door to get that favorite piece of candy. My favorite candy has always been snickers and each year I take out all of the snickers bars and feast…I know, I know I should not, but I cannot help myself I am freakin addicted to the snickers bar….So this is the 1st year that I will not be walking down Main Street in Sag Harbor on Halloween with Allura, she has Field Hockey practice and therefore no Main street, but don’t feel so bad for her yet because we will be going to East Hampton I hope. I say I hope because she is a Pre-teen and therefore the plans are not set until 15 minutes before they are to begin. Ahhh the joy of being a teen with no worries…I love trick-o-treating in East Hampton because many of the homes are decorated and the inner child has emerged from many of these adults. I love to see so many children all dressed up and the joy that you see on their face as you open the door with a bowl full of candy. I do feel for those who have no candy and hide in their homes afraid to answer the doors because children can be merciless when you hold out on the Candy on Halloween….SO BUSINESSES ON MAIN STREET TAKE A HINT AND MAKE SURE YOU OPEN YOUR DOORS AND WELCOME ALL OF THE CHILDREN…..DO NOT RUN OUT OF CANDY…Apples and Raisins are not a winner with kids…
So with that being said, lets take a sneak peak at what’s happening this Halloween Weekend in the Hamptons…
