LEWISTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Kids get more than their fair share of treats when they visit Peter Geiger's home on Halloween night.
For nearly twenty years Geiger, the editor of the Farmer's Almanac, has been giving out king-sized candy bars to trick-or-treaters. The loot attracts hundreds of people from all over Lewiston and other communities every year.
The newspaper publishes a different "secret password" each year that trick-or-treaters have to give when they get to the door. That password gets each child three king-sized candy bars and each adult one as well. The families then walk through Geiger's house to his garage where there is a haunted house.
"What I really like is that families come out one last time before winter," Geiger said. "They're all excited ,they're all happy, and I give out giant candy bars or king size candy bars because as a child that's what I wanted myself."
Geiger bought 3,500 candy bars for Halloween this year and planned to buy more during the night. He had more than 1,000 trick-or-treaters.
