AURORA ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL
HALLOWEEN TRICK-OR-TREAT HOURS
| The City of Aurora has announced its official Halloween trick-or-treat hours as 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 31 and is reminding all residents to continue making safety a top priority when collecting Halloween candy this year.
Parents accompanying their children are encouraged to go out earlier when it still is light outside, and to remember the following Halloween safety tips:
- When shopping for costumes, wigs and accessories, look for labels clearly indicating they are flame resistant.
- Children or an accompanying adult should carry a flashlight; and costumes should be bright or reflective so children can see and be seen. Putting reflective tape on costumes is another option.
- Masks, costumes and shoes should be well-fitting to avoid blocked vision, trips and falls.
- Children should stay on sidewalks, look both ways before crossing streets and use established crosswalks wherever possible.
- Props like swords, knives and other objects should be made of soft or flexible material.
- Candy should be collected only from homes with a front porch light on; and kids should only enter homes if they're with a trusted adult. Otherwise, Trick-or-Treaters should stay outside.
- Bring a cell phone while trick-or-treating in case of an emergency.
- Only factory-wrapped treats should be eaten; homemade treats should be avoided unless the cook is well-known to the trick-or-treater or their family.
- Parents can verify addresses of sex offenders living in their neighborhoods by visiting the sex offender website, OffenderWatch, prior to trick-or-treating.
