Usually - I've been a traditionalist when it comes to certain holidays - Christmas on the 25th of December, New Years Day is January 1st, etc... but Halloween is on a Sunday night in 2010. Many communities are promoting that "Trick or Treat" times are moved to Friday or Saturday night this year. This allows busy parents (like us) to spend time with our kids, enjoy the holiday safely, and stay away from a "late night sugar rush" on a Sunday evening, with school the next morning.
I can't find any harm in suggesting Frisco adopt a "October 30th, 2010 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm" posted Trick or Treat schedule - and POST IT on the community calendar page (along with sending messages to local schools and news stations for getting the word around).

The City of Frisco observes Halloween on October 31. We encourage residents to use their discretion on the times they choose to pass out candy and/or allow their children to ‘trick or treat’. That said, most children begin trick or treating at dusk and are finished between 8:30 – 9 p.m.
This year, Halloween falls on a Sunday. For residents who have conflicting commitments, we encourage you to communicate with your Home Owners Association to see if your neighborhood has organized an alternative event for residents. We also invite residents to attend Fall Festival at Frisco Fire Safety Town, which is this Friday, October 22 from 6 - 9 p.m. It’s free and open to children, tots through elementary school age.
