The darker the section the more children living in the area, and the more likely you are to get an onslaught of costume-clad kids at your door tonight. It looks like the most spooktacular area for trick-or-treaters in Vancouver is estimated to be within the blocks between Main Street and Knight Street along Southeast Marine Drive.
