I was thinking of participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project this year, and was hoping to get a sense from people who have done it in previous years of how many kiddos are likely to show up. I wouldn’t want to put our house on the map and then run out of supplies! Thanks in advance for any information.
We’ve never heard of the “Teal Pumpkin Project” but for our neighborhood one year we’ll get 100 plus kids then the next year only a handful it’s always hit or miss.??? Left over candy ALWAYS goes to husbands work. LOL!!!

On my street in Arbor heights, kids knocking at the door has been less and less every year.
We had 5 knocks on the door last year. About the same the year before. I think parents are taking their kids to the West Seattle business districts in daylight to trick or treat. near us, Westwood Center does it.
I’ve done teal project past two years in Admiral, @55 kids, none were asking for teal. I handed out rice Krispy treats, so might have been okay for gluten issues and not asking for alternative (quarters).
I’m in Highland Park on a street with sidewalks and street lights. We get between 30-60 kids depending on the weather. I’ve had a teal pumpkin and put ourselves on the map every year, and I think we only have had one kid in all the years we’ve done it.
