[ARCHIVED] Geneva Announces Halloween Trick-Or-Treat Hours

Geneva children and parents are encouraged to trick-or-treat in their neighborhoods between the City’s recommended Halloween hours of 3 to 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31.

Families have two additional candy collection opportunities in the community. Geneva Commons will host trick-or-treating from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23 and downtown merchants will be offering free Halloween treats to children from 2 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27. Look for trick-or-treat signs in store windows at both events for participating businesses.

The Geneva Police Department wants all little superheroes, princesses and scary monsters to have a fun and safe Halloween experience this year. Parents should take an active role in this process by making sure their families follow these safety tips:

• Wear light-colored clothing or some type of reflective material for better visibility.
• Ensure costumes fit and are worn in a manner that prevents tripping.
• If children wear masks, make sure they can see clearly and their visibility is not compromised.
• Small children should always be accompanied by an adult.
• Trick-or-treat in groups.
• Go out in the daylight when possible and carry a flashlight for use if out after dark.
• Only give and accept wrapped candy.
• Examine all candy before allowing children to eat it.
• Carrying hard props such as swords and daggers should be substituted with soft foam rubber materials.
• Stay within familiar neighborhoods.
• Watch for traffic.

The Geneva Police Department hopes everyone has an enjoyable Halloween.
