Trick or Treat Hours


Dear All,

There is a chill in the air, pumpkins are being carved, lots of homes have festive decorations, and soon it will be time for those little “ghosts and goblins and other tiny creatures” to go venturing out.  Attached are the “Trick or Treating” hours for Indianapolis this year as well as some safety tips.  Do be careful Halloween night, and extra cautious when driving, as when children are out they are excited and may not be paying close attention to a vehicle traveling down the road.

Many special activities, parties, and ‘safe” trick or treating are offered by various organizations and churches.  While I am sure there are more in the district than the two I have flyers for below – both the Lions Club in Clermont and the Speedway Chamber of Commerce with B&W Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning have special events on Saturday evening.  This is a terrific alternative to traditional Trick or Treating and still a great way for the children to dress up and have a lot of fun.

Have fun, be safe, and enjoy this “spooky” time of year!

If you are participating in this year’s Halloween festivities please consider the following safety tips:

  • Wear fire-resistant costumes
  • Make sure children can see well through face masks
  • Don’t wear masks or disguises into businesses
  • Adults should accompany young children and children with special needs
  • Go out in daylight hours if possible or carry a flashlight if you’ll be out after dark Motorists are reminded to slow down and be aware of their surroundings
  • Only give and accept wrapped or packaged treats
  • Examine all treats before allowing children to eat them.
  • If you find a suspicious item, contact police as soon as possible at 327-3811
  • If injury is involved, dial 911
  • Avoid props such as toy guns, which can look real
  • Consider block parties instead of trick-or-treating
  • Don’t fire guns – it’s illegal and – what goes up, must come down
  • Check the weather and have appropriate dress under costumes in the event of cold temperatures
Have a Happy Halloween!
