Tybee Island’s Lewis Avenue – a popular Halloween destination known as Trick-or-Treat Street – will have Halloween on Sat. Oct. 29 2011 because the traditional date of Oct. 31 falls on a Monday this year.
Residents of Lewis Avenue asked the Tybee City Council for the change and it was granted. The street attracts more than 2,000 people every October.
Residents decorate their yards with Halloween decor and the city buys at least $1,000 worth of candy to make sure homeowners don’t run out.
