Village Trick or Treat Hours and Tips!

The Village of Bolingbrook has established the following hours and precautions for “Trick or Treating” on Friday, October 31, 2014.

All children should “Trick or Treat” between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

  • Make sure children are accompanied by an adult or responsible teenager when they go door to door. Go with them yourself if you can.
  • Instruct children never to eat anything until they are home and the treats have been examined. Cut and wash fruit before eating. Throw away anything unwrapped.
  • Check the wrappers for signs of tampering.
  • Bring suspicious items to the Police Station.
  • Make sure children’s costumes fit and that they can see well.
  • Tell children to trick-or-treat in their own neighborhoods.
  • If children are going to be out after dark, make sure they carry a flashlight.
  • Teach children to use the sidewalks. If there are no sidewalks, walk on the left side of the street facing the cars.
  • Know which friends your children will be with and which route they are taking.
  • Leave a porch light on so children will know it’s ok to visit your home.
