It’s that time of year when ghosts, ghouls, and goblins take to the streets and set out for one thing. Don’t worry, they’re not after you, they just want your candy!

According to the Indiana Business Research Center (IBRC) at Indiana University, there was an estimated 1 million potential trick-or-treaters (children between ages 5 and 13) in 2010.

Of course, there are many children younger than five and older than 13 who also trick-or-treat. IBRC results also revealed that an estimated 2.5 million potential trick-or-treating stops in the State of Indiana with 65 percent of all Americans expected to celebrate Halloween.

In 2009, 71.2 percent of individuals handed out candy. IBRC claims Halloween is the candy industry’s biggest candy selling holiday and that Tootsie Rolls are the most popular Halloween candy - followed by Hershey’s Milk Chocolate, Nestle Crunch and candy corn.

The towns of Versailles, Osgood, Napoleon, Friendship, Milan, Sunman, Holton and Batesville have scheduled Trick-or-Treat nights as follows:
