I will say that the other day I drove by a local episcopalian church that was advertising their harvest festival, on Oct 31st, from 6-8pm.
I don't know anything about whether or not it's a halloween deflection or an actual celebration of the harvest (which blew this year), but the fact that it occured right when the prime trick or treating hours were did catch my eye.
Harvest festivals are normally before Thanksgiving. Setveral churches in my neighborhood have them. They have pumpkins, scarecrows, corn mazes...etc. Some start right before Halloween. In fact I went to one last weekend with my daughter. I was not offended.
