Trick-or-treat hours

Each year, the Village Board sets the official hours for Halloween trick or treating. Typically, the hours are 4 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 31. Parents are urged to accompany young children, especially after dark, and inspect all treats. Other safety tips include:

  • Use make-up instead of masks
  • Choose flame-retardant costumes
  • Wear light-colored clothing at night or add reflective tape to dark colored costumes
  • Give and accept only wrapped and packaged candy
  • Go out in daylight and carry a flashlight in case of delay
  • Stay within your neighborhood and visit only homes you know
