The Spookiest Cities in America

Are you planning a Halloween party this year? I prefer throwing a party to trick-or-treating, but as the girls have gotten older, my either-or stance on the subject doesn’t fly. So, I’ve given up on the elaborate event for a spooky dinner at home interspersed with neighborhood trick-or-treating.

Apparently, I’m not alone around here — Indiana doesn’t land on the Evite.com list of 10 cities who throw the most Halloween parties! In fact, only 12% of Evite users threw a Halloween party on the 31st last year.

I’m sure they’re celebrating over the weekend, but even attendance has been down — the average number of guests in 2009 was 35, in 2010 & 2011, it was only 28 & 29. I don’t think I’ve ever had more than 15-20 people at a home party.

To extend the celebration beyond one, sugar-filled school night, Evite is launching Halloweek — a festive week of celebrations and activities for kids and adults. Invitations are available now to get your party started, even if it is a few days before the actual holiday.
All data is based on information culled from Evite’s 31 million registered users who send 250 million invitations annually.
