This was our first Halloween in DTLA and it was safe, fun and family friendly. We went trick or treating during the day with my daughters classmates at the Lumbini Center. They had a parade in the school before we set off to Little Tokyo and made a killing worth of yummy eats. The parents each provided the candy, snack or treat. The school then mixed it up and handed it out to vendors throughout Little Tokyo. At first this bothered me and I felt cheated that we had to provide our own candy! Sheesh! But reconsidering, this was the smartest thing to do. You know where the candy is coming from, what not to bring in case of allergies, and you guarantee your little one a pumpkin pail brimming with healthier treats.
