Halloween has almost become more of an adult holiday instead of one focused around the kids. I was involved with some of the celebrations for Halloween on Church Street in Toronto the last few years and that would draw thousands of costumed adults each Halloween - and watching the news last night there were all kinds of huge Halloween parties in places like the Liberty Grand in Toronto that had over 4000 people.
I had to pick up a costume to wear to my bowling league Halloween night this past Wednesday and at Target over half the Halloween costume section was for adults - not kids.
Here is an article from Forbes titled - 'How Adults Have Hijacked Halloween From Kids'

At the apartment building I'm in on the west mountain in Hamilton they always distribute candy from the lobby. They got so few kids and had so much stuff leftover that when I walked through the lobby around 9:00PM they offered me 'some' treats. Before i knew it this is what I got. (so much for my diet - lol).
