If you're chaperoning a bunch of trick-or-treaters this year, tell them to grab the extra-large pillowcase — San Francisco is officially the best place to score a sugar high on Halloween.

The annual Zillow list of the best places for children to trick-or-treat has once again crowned San Francisco the City of Sugar based on factors such as walkability, safety, and (of course) amount of candy swag each trick-or-treater has in his or her bag. Not only did Zillow break down which cities are best for trick-or-treating, the site shared which San Francisco neighborhoods kids should visit if they're hoping to score full-sized candy bars; here they are: 

5. Presidio Heights
4. Cow Hollow
3. Sea Cliff
2. Glen Park
1. Noe Valley 

And if you're wondering what cities we beat to claim the top spot for the fourth consecutive year, check out the other U.S. cities that are giving away decent treats:

10. Portland, OR
9. San Diego
8. Seattle
7. Boston
6. Honolulu
5. San Jose
4. Philadelphia
3. Chicago
2. Los Angeles
1. San Francisco 

(We bet dentists in all these cities are getting their filling equipment ready now.)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
