For the last two years, Kennewick has made the National Top 10 list of best places to Trick or Treat during Halloween but now Kennewick has reached a new height in it's candy giving placement! 

Kennewick placed 3rd last year in a Top 10 list compiled by a website called Smart Asset. but now is at #2 for 2018!

The website looks at 7 metrics to best decide the Top 10 cities and towns to Trick or Treat in. Kennewick also placed 4th on the list in 2016.

Some of the metrics that decide our fate in the Top 10 list is data for population density, percent of residents under the age of 15, home values, violent and property crime rates, precipitation and temperature.

Here's what the website wrote about us this year.

2. (tie) Kennewick, WA

Kennewick, Washington comes in tied for second. This city is great on Halloween, because it allows its residents to wear costumes of all types. Halloween temperatures in Kennewick are usually in the high 50s with little chance of rain. That means it’s probably cold enough that you won’t sweat through an elaborate layered costume nor cold enough that you have to cover up a simpler outfit. Costumes that rely on makeup also get the green light here, thanks to the aforementioned dry weather. Kennewick is also a child-friendly city with a low violent crime rate. Kennewick ranks in the top 15% of cities for percent of residents under age 15 and violent crime rate.

 

I'm over the moon on this year's placement. There is only one slot ahead of us so it's a pretty cool honor. You can check the Smart Asset website for yourself and check out the other Top 9 cities for Trick or Treating.
