What about scaring the kids on hay rides? When I was a kid here in the 'burbs of Detroit, we had what we called Devil's Night - the night before Halloween where we would toilet paper the neighborhood. Write messages on cars with soap bars. And a whole lot more.
Right, Cane. Now we have "Angel's Night" where volunteers drive around to help keep an eye on things and prevent the fires that were so prevalent on Devil's Night in recent years. Long ago, it was TPing trees and soaping people's windows. I remember walking up to my Catholic grade school when I was in maybe 4th or 5th grade to see every window in the school covered in streaks from bars of soap LOL
