If you didn’t get the hint from the cooler temperatures, changing leaves, and pumpkin-spiced everything, it’s the season of fall. Which also means it’s time for Halloween. It’s a holiday for scares and horror, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be safe! Here’s everything trick-or-treaters in Chicago should know before heading out to have a safe and fun Halloween.
Know Your Community’s Trick or Treat Hours
Trick-or-treating hours vary by location, but the safest bet is to not stay out past dark. Here’s the official times for some local communities (all dates Oct. 31st unless noted):
Clarendon Hills, La Grange, Oak Brook, and Willowbrook—3-7 p.m. (Clarendon Hills also offers trick-or-treating at downtown businesses from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on October 29th)
La Grange Park, Western Springs and Burr Ridge—3-8 p.m.
Oakbrook Terrace—2-6 p.m.
Darien and Hinsdale—No official hours, but they recommend younger children stopping before it gets dark.
Tips to Stay Safe While Trick-or-Treating
Children should always be accompanied by an adult, and its best to stick to the designated times and routes you know will be well-lit. For adolescents and older kids trick-or-treating without supervision, make sure to bring a cellphone. Children should also avoid eating any candy before an adult has examined them.
Avoid masks with your costume, they blur and limit your vision. Substitute make-up instead. Also, be sure to make your costume flame retardant (you can find flame retardant spray online at Amazon.com or at any local Walmart).
When trick-or-treating, wear reflective tape or carry a flashlight or glow stick to make yourself more visible to cars. Never enter the home or back yard of a stranger.
