Trick or treating is so much fun!

Top Tips for a safe & fun night! 

  1. Kids can start knocking on doors from 4pm, and most wrap up by 8pm when it gets dark.
  2. Only knock on doors that have Halloween decorations or other signs that indicate the people in the house are happy to be approached by trick or treaters. Look out for cobwebs, an orange balloon or pumpkin… though some go all out with incredible Halloween displays!  No decorations? Don’t knock.
  3. Don’t knock on doors after dark or if a home’s lights are out. Also keep an eye out for signs that politely ask trick or treaters not to knock.
  4. If you visit a street or neighbourhood just for Halloween (not an area where you live), consider supporting the residents and their generosity by taking lollies to replenish their jars.
  5. Parents make sure you accompany your kids! Older kids might not want parents ‘cramping their style’, but just tell them you’ll follow from a distance.
