Tybee Island Moves Up Halloween

Tybee Island officials want to get the word out: any costumed candy seekers who come there for Halloween this Oct. 31 will feel like they've been tricked.

The Savannah Morning News reports the Tybee City Council has agreed to move trick-or-treating on the island to Saturday, Oct. 29th because the traditional date falls on a Monday.

The change was requested by residents of a single street. But Lewis Avenue has special clout at Halloween.

Also known as Trick-or-Treat Street, it draws more than 2,000 people every October, many from Savannah and other nearby communities.

Residents decorate their yards with tombstones and pirate ships and the city buys at least $1,000 worth of candy to make sure homeowners don't run out.
