Halloween Trick or Treating Hours and Safety Tips

Halloween is Wednesday and we're sharing some safety tips to make it a fun night. Find out the suggested trick-or-treating hours.

Halloween is right around the corner ... are your kids ready to go trick-or-treating?

Batavia Police suggest the trick-or-treat hours of 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31.

Here are the police department's safety tips for your little ones:

  • Walk in small groups, not alone.
  • Bicycles and skateboards should be left at home.
  • Younger children should be accompanied by adults.
  • Costumes should not restrict vision.
  • Use stick-on reflective material generously.
  • Carry a flashlight if out after dark.
  • Only give or accept wrapped or packaged candy.
  • Parents should examine candy carefully before children are allowed to eat it.

Before you go, take a look at our sex offender map for Batavia and avoid these homes.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
