Hundreds of kids will invade a South Roanoke neighborhood Halloween night. We're talking about Stanley Avenue.  The road is blocked off for the night and every resident on the street goes all out for Halloween. Denise Knisely told News 7, "Everyone, old and young.  It doesn't matter, two or if you are 72, everyone is into it. " Residents decorate their homes and their yards. It is a tradition that goes back decades.  No one knows exactly when it started.   Residents will start preparing months in advance.  It takes a lot of time and money.  Many tell us they will easily spend up to $500 on decorations and candy.

Flurries count as a trace. If you're looking for something more than a few flying flurries, you'd have to go back to October 10th 1979, where .30" of snow fell in Roanoke.
