Roving Reporter | Halloween in Whistler's Cove by Jeanette Larson

The fun starts early in the evening
Based on candy counts, more than 1,000 children from Aransas County celebrated Halloween in Whistler's Cove. The neighborhood is noted as one of the top places for Trick-or-Treaters to go in Rockport. In addition to the many homeowner's who sit outside to distribute goodies, the evening is supported by members of First Baptist Church. Every year the congregation provides bags of candy for those in Whistler's Cove who need help meeting the huge need (several people reported spending $150-200 on candy and non-candy treats). The church also provides parking and bottled water for the families. Residents noted how polite the children are, most expressing thanks for the candy and having a lot of fun with their costumes.
