Trick or Treating Times

by The Rullo Team

 

It's that time of year again, when little goblins and ghosts will be going door to door trick-or-treating. Children and parents are encouraged to trick-or-treat in their neighborhoods between their City’s recommended Halloween hours:

  • St Charles recommends that you limit trick-or-treating to 3 to 7 pm on October 31
  • Geneva children and parents are encouraged to trick-or-treat in their neighborhoods between the City’s recommended Halloween hours of 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, October 31. **Families also are invited to two additional candy collection opportunities in Geneva. Participating downtown businesses will be offering free Halloween treats to children from 2 to 5 p.m. Thursday, October 29, and Geneva Commons will host trick-or-treating from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, October 25.
  • Batavia’s suggested hours for trick-or-treating are from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 31

To assure that all little superheroes, princesses and scary monsters

have a fun and safe Halloween experience this year, parents should take an active role in this process

by making sure their families follow these safety tips:

 

Young children should be accompanied by their parents or another responsible adult.

 If there is a chance children will be out after dark, at least one member of each group should carry a flashlight.

Teach and stress to children to watch for traffic. Walk only on sidewalks and cross the streets at intersections.
 
Bicycles and skateboards should be left at home.

Use stick-on reflective material generously.

Only give or accept wrapped or packaged candy.

Do not trick-or-treat at a house if there is no light on.

Ensure costumes fit and are worn in a manner that prevents tripping.

If children wear masks, make sure they can see clearly and their visibility is not obstructed.

Stay within familiar neighborhoods.
Carrying hard props such as swords and daggers should be substituted with soft foam rubber materials.
