The best trick-or-treating on the north side is in Dunwoody North's, Briers North Subdivision.

Trick-or-treating will be welcomed in Briers North Subdivision
from 6 pm to 8:30 pm on Wednesday, October 31.

Once upon a time, a family at the corner of Briers North Drive and Tilly Mill Road decided to add some larger-than-life decorations to their home for Halloween. A number of people stopped by to admire them. They also did some trick-or-treating in the quiet neighborhood.

The next year, encouraged by the positive response, more families decorated their homes, and wore costumes themselves to give candy to trick-or-treaters. Even more visitors came by to play and trick-or-treat that Halloween.

And so the tradition grew year after year until the number of visitors in 2004 was estimated in excess of 5,000. Halloween @ Briers North brings visitors from around Georgia, and even a few from outside of the state.

The community's households all contribute to the celebration: whether it is distributing candy, adding decorations, or paying for the cost of DeKalb Police to direct traffic and keep everyone safe. You may even find a haunted house or two! Please check out the Briers website for more information.

Thanks for coming by, John.
ESPN had a mobile production truck outside the neighborhood for a short time. They took some stock footage of the decorations and visitors and interspersed it in the VA Tech/GA Tech game tonight. You can probably see it again during the repeats.

Thanks for the ideas. There's always something new to learn and improve on in this mad internet world. Uptiming is surely something to keep an eye on. construction equipment
