    There was no trick or treat at Dayton Mall today. I just brought my, all dressed up and terribly sad 3 year old, home from MEGA disappointment. Not only was it not going on, but no one knew anything of it, not the stores, not the office, no one.

      Donna, I apologize for disappointing your 3 year old. This event was from a round up post from a few years ago.
