Can you trick or treat as a teen, or even as an adult?

I hear somewhere that the official age you should stop trick or treating is when your 13. Are you guys still going or not?

I personally trick or treated till I was 14 or 15?

I think you can do it at any age as long as you accept the fact you're going to get some strange looks and some people not willing to part with their candy to you.

we dun really celebrate in australia but some throw party i definately went out in costume to party!!!! and i would trick or treat every year if we did that. u never too old unless ur like 30? but if u have lil cousin, niece, sibling, or child u could just go out with them and still be dressed up and act like ur only dressed cus ur taking them . so ur never too old.

After trick or treating come the parties. Much more fun in my opinion.

You can, but you may be thought of as strange for doing so.

I dont trick or treat anymore, but as adults we have these things called parties... with alcohol and food. It's more fun than going out in the cold and rain and trying to get treats rather than tricks.

Some places have age limitation ordinances set up in their local governments. Ours is 18 yrs., others towns around us are lower, 16 or 14 yrs, etc.
It wasn't for restricting the age of those who wanted to dress up or gather candy from generous neighbors as much as it was an effort to prevent mischief & vandalism from older kids, unsupervised.
In recent yrs., they've also set stricter curfews, especially when Halloween lands on a school night.

So, check those party options, or the big tend around our area are Haunted Houses set up by local businesses, clubs, & organizations. Went with a group to two different ones a couple of weeks ago, had a blast of good adrenalin induced fun!
They do charge a fee (often less than the price of movie tix, you'll have to weigh the value against your measure of entertainment), tho they are usually set up as fund raisers for local charities. My friend looked online for ones in our area, for info: place, dates, hrs. of operation, the designated charity,etc.

There is no "official age" I say if you're older and you want to go trick or treating go for it. Some people may find it weird, in that case use your younger sibling as an excuse.

I didn't stop trick or treating until I turned 17.

The issue with trick or treating as teenagers is that there is a perception that they will go out and cause some havoc in neighborhoods. A stereotype yes, but one that is prevalent.

In my opinions adults should go trick or treating; just buy your own damn candy instead of trying to mooch off others!

For teens its more of a gray area. However trick or treating is generally considered to be for grade school children so I would say that most teens should not do so unless they are accompanying a younger family member or friend.

I stopped getting treats at 13...Just seemed lame.

I started tricking at 14...Throwing eggs with friends at passing cars and peoples houses I didn't like...Good times.

Today, I just go to parties and get faded.

I find it awkward. I feel like the age range is around 10 and under before it becomes "don't you have anything better to do?"

Like, go to a Halloween party in your teens instead of trick or creeping.
