LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevadans are expected to show a little less Halloween spirit this year than they did last year, at least when it comes their pocketbooks.

The Retail Association of Nevada predicts the state will see up to $103 million in Halloween-related sales this season, down 13.1 percent from last year's totals.

On a national level, consumers are expected to spend about $75 each on their celebrations this year. The National Retail Federation projects consumers will hand over an average of $28 for costumes, $22 for candy, $21 for decorations and $4 for greeting cards.

Federation officials reported record-high spending last year for Halloween, but say the number of people planning to celebrate the holiday this year has dropped from 72 percent to 66 percent year-over-year, and celebrants plan to spend less.
