Re: When do you Trick Or Treat?

Generally on weekdays from 4 till 8pm. The township sets the end time. On weekdays nobody trick or treats around here until after school has let out for the day around 3:45. We always trick or treat on the 31st.

Re: When do you Trick Or Treat?

We usually go to the school carnival, its always the Fri night before Halloween. We trick or treat on Halloween. The neighborhood we go to close the road w/ a fire truck. Younger kids usually go trick or treating between 5-7 pm and older kids tweens/teens usually go out a little later 6:30 on.

It seems bizarre to me to ToT on any day but Oct 31st! I'm on Ontario Canada and I've never even heard of elected officials dictating when you can ToT! Here we go on the 31st, usually between 6 and 8:30. My kids usually just go to the neighbours we know to show off their costumes and come back within the hour since we don't really eat the loot (too many dietary restrictions for most candy).

Another Canadian who has never lived anywhere where we Trick or Treat any day other than the 31st. We generally wait until it's at least getting dark, and then stay out for an hour to an hour and a half. This year it's a weeknight, so we will try not to stay out too late.

Re: When do you Trick Or Treat?

ON the base here, it's been the Saturday before Halloween from 5-7 pm. This year, they've switched it to Halloween Day- even though it's a weeknight I hope I get off work early enough

The city my parents are in do the Saturday nearest Halloween too

Re: When do you Trick Or Treat?

It sounds strange to me to have designated days and times. Here it's on the 31st and time is whenever but generally 6-9. Porch lights or lighted decor suggests you are participating.

Always the 31st. No set times. In general people start around 5:30(after people get home from work) and end between 8&9. In our old neighbourhood they were done at 6:30, but those people would move to the other end if town(where we are now). I expect it to be around 9
