[ARCHIVED] Trick or Treat Hours


Kids love Halloween! To dress up in scary costumes and go door-to-door yelling “Trick or Treat” is one of the great adventures of autumn.

Trick or treat hours within the Village will be 3 to 8 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 31. Follow these easy tips to keep children safe:

• Always go trick or treating accompanied by an adult.
• Only Trick or Treat at Houses that have their front porch light turned on.
• Stick to the designated trick or treat time and pick subdivisions and areas with many homes.
• Plan a safe route so you know where your children are at all times. Carry a cell phone.
• Stay together as a group if going out without an adult.
• Stay in well-lit, populated areas and do not wander off by yourself.
• Do not eat any treats until they can be examined at home by an adult.
• Never enter a home, back or side yard of a stranger or get into a stranger’s car.
• Carry a flashlight, glow stick or have reflective tape on costumes to make them more visible
• Make sure costumes are flame retardant or have been treated with fire retardant spray.
• Avoid masks. They limit vision. Use make-up instead.

Remember that this is a day of fun. Bensenville does not tolerate vandalism. Damaging property is a crime and the police will arrest those who think they can get away with mischief because it is Halloween.
