As Halloween edges closer, some Auckland streets are going all out to decorate their homes and stock up on sugary treats.
Others will be banning trick-or-treaters this Saturday night in post-pandemic New Zealand.

Hi Neighbours, Officially the short-list has been drawn up for a new name for the merged council agencies ATEED and RFA. But here's the criteria - see if you can do better. What would you call it? Read the story below:
It's been 10 years since Auckland's new super-city was formed, forged from eight legacy councils.
For Aucklanders who have lived through the massive overhaul, do you think local government is running more smoothly?
Auckland Council's first year was far from smooth with the Occupy protest, the Rugby World Cup opening night transport debacle, a battle with central government over funding the inner-city rail loop, and a contest of wills over delegating powers to local boards and council-controlled organisations.
Auckland's inaugural super mayor Len Brown hailed it a success.
"Generally 2011 has been a good first year for the council, " Brown said in 2012.
"We've brought the region together... At the same time we have driven $81 million in efficiencies and reduced the inherited 9.3 per cent rates increase down to 3.9 per cent."
The boundaries of the new super city were unveiled in 2010.
Super city Auckland was divided into 13 wards with 21 local boards.
