Halloween Just Got Easier: Nextdoor Debuts Halloween Treat Map

Halloween is the quintessential neighborhood holiday – it is the perfect time to connect with your neighbors while trick-or-treating and rediscover what you love about where you live. To celebrate the most neighborly holiday of the year, Nextdoor just launched a Halloween Treat Map to give you an insider’s guide to the best streets for treats in your neighborhood.

Nextdoor’s Halloween Treat Map lets you mark your home with a candy corn icon to let your neighborhood know you will be giving out candy. We are taking the guesswork and aimless wandering out of Halloween to ensure you find the best, most convenient route possible for your trick-or-treaters, whether you’re on your computer or headed out into the neighborhood with Nextdoor for iPhone.

Follow these simple steps to use the Treat Map:

  1. Sign in to your account. If you are not yet a member, you can sign up and verify your address to ensure you don’t miss out: www.nextdoor.com/treat.
  2. Once signed in, visit your neighborhood map. Above your address parcel you will be given the choice to plot a candy corn icon on top of your home. If you live in or plan to visit a multi-tenant building, just click on the parcel to see the details of who will be participating in that building.
  3. Encourage your neighbors to place a candy corn on the map so you’ll know who exactly is participating.

This is just one of many ways we are leveraging the power of technology to bring you closer to the people who live right next door. We hope you have a very happy and safe Halloween!

  1. This is such a great idea and definitely a different service not offered by the neighborhoods Facebook group. Keep coming up with stuff like this as it will help encourage more activity.

    Thanks!

  2. What a ‘sweet’ and cute idea — Kudos all around! I am forwarding both this “treat tech” development and the Word Press Blog link to Ashton Grove in Charlotte, NC. thanks for all you do

  3. Anne,

    Your post indicates we can use this functionality with Nextdoor for iPhone. Can you please elaborate? I am not seeing the map function on the app and the Help page indicates this is not an included functionality. Thank you.

  4. Thank! This has generated more activity, we have 34 Candycorn Houses, enough to map out a route. We have even had a few new members join up just to use the map, imagine that.

    I did notice the iPhone map doesn’t show ALL the homes designated correctly with a candy corn? My house is not showing up correctly (sad face).
    I understand there is a fix on the way?

    A “Haunted House” icon would be nice…some neighbors go all out to provide a fright night.
