Been reading about these online and would love to try! Anybody involved in planning Halloween event that might be able to.offer it?

Seems very popular in many tourist destinations around the world (except Caribbean).

On STT predominantly at school and community parties. The Tutu Park Mall hosts an annual kid's party. Very little of the door to door activities common on the mainland. Our "neighborhoods" are very spread out and on hilly terrain, most roads have no sidewalks.

There is a small trick-or-treat event in Fsted along the cruise ship harbor shop row. As OT said there isn't much door-to-door except in certain neighborhoods.

I haven't heard about the Sunny Isle event in a while. Our kids are grown so it's possible I'm out of touch.

In all the many years I have lived in STT in various places, I have only had 1 child (with
a parent waiting in car on the road in front of my parking area) come to my door. Luckily,
I had some fruit and a lone chocolate bar for the poor kid! I stocked up the following yr.,
just in case, but guess they found greener pastures so I had to find someone else to give the bag of mixed candy I had purchased.

They may have something at the STT Yacht Club so one could call and check whether they do it for kids or adults (or both). Sibilly School on northside has a haunted house/halloween event for kids including those not attending the school, I believe.

On St Croix there are many organized and fun family events. GoodHope Country Day school has Trunk r Treat on the school soccer field, where kids go from car to car, gallows bay has fun trick or treating for both parents and kids...with Margaritas, multiple large family organized trick r treating and parties, AZ academy hosts an awesome haunted house,...often combined with he Boy Scouts. No problem finding fun here. Schools have parties during the day too!

Thanks everyone for posting, but I'd really like to experience something new. I and lots of other people love challenges and Escape Rooms seem to be a great way to engage.

Likely too late for this year but why don't you present a proposal to the Department of Tourism and the Chamber of Commerce?
