It’s that spooky time of year, when you dress up and walk the streets of El Paso begging your neighbors for food. Okay, maybe you’re one of the neighbors that gives out the food instead (kidding.)
No matter how you participate in Halloween, the point is that you do, in some way partake in the activities. That’s according to new information complied by WalletHub. The study also says the average El Pasoan/American will shell out $74.34 this year on Halloween decorations, costumes, candy and other Halloween related expenses. Of course, the biggest expense will come from costumes.
“WalletHub compared the 100 largest cities across 16 key metrics, ranging from the number of candy stores per capita to the average cost of a Halloween party ticket to the best and worst weather forecasts for Halloween,” says the company.
