Nextdoor has announced the return of its annual Treat Map, an interactive local guide for celebrating Halloween. Continuing its 11-year tradition of helping families and Halloween aficionados connect with the best trick-or-treating routes and most haunting home decor, this year’s Treat Map introduces new functionality that allows neighbors to view and explore Halloween festivities in any neighborhood and share their favorite Treat Map finds with friends and fellow fun-seekers.

From now through the end of the month, neighbors can access the Treat Map from Nextdoor’s Discover tab to start sharing their Halloween plans. Through October 31st, neighbors can drop a themed pin on the Treat Map for their home or local business, to signal their participation in spooky season. To inspire others to get in on the fun, neighbors can add images and text to their pins to showcase their plans and activities, from photos of frightfully festive decor, to offerings of allergy-friendly treats, to their plans to give the ultimate Halloween handout: king-sized candy bars.

For the first time, this year, neighbors can also explore neighborhoods outside their own, to find the most popular places and most spirited streets for Halloween fun. From the Treat Map, neighbors simply drag the map and navigate to any Nextdoor neighborhood to view the pins and posts in other locales. By clicking “Share this Area”, neighbors can also share any ghoulishly great neighborhoods, top-notch trick-or-treat routes, or particularly tempting Treat Map posts with friends and families, via text or their social channels.

“When Halloween falls on a weeknight night, families are finding new ways to make the most of this once-a-year celebration. From visiting local business centers or community events to joining friends and family in their neighborhoods, families are eager to plan a fun, efficient school night Halloween,” said Emma Mandolino, Head of Nextdoor CREATE. “With the ability to search the Treat Map for any neighborhood, we’re giving neighbors the opportunity to prepare, plan, and enjoy the ultimate Halloween…”

Neighbors can find the Treat Map in the Discover section of the Nextdoor app, or by visiting nextdoor.com/halloween.
