This is a town-sponsoredd event and is not the same as traditional residential trick-or-treating. The Town of Broadway does not determine, enforce or coordinate a Trick-or-Treat time. If you have questions about when people will be Trick-or-Treating in your neighborhood, please talk to your neighbors. Each neighborhood or residence decides when (or if at all) to pass out candy for Halloween Trick-or-Treaters. If you do not wish to participate, leave your porch light off. If you are seeking candy, do not approach a house without a porch light on!

Halloween Safety:

Always keep in mind a few safety tips when trick‐or‐treating this Halloween:

Before trick‐or‐treating:

  • Plan your route ahead of time: Trick-or-Treat in familiar neighborhoods.
  • Make certain costumes do not inhibit vision and will not cause tripping or falling.
  • Teach children to never enter a person’s home or vehicle.
  • Pick a place to meet in case you get separated and write down emergency contacts.

While trick‐or‐treating:

  • Trick‐or‐treat earlier in the evening to finish before it gets too dark.
  • All Halloween Trick-or-Treaters should have a flashlight or a device that helps motorists be able to see you while walking through neighborhoods on dark roads.
  • Children should never trick‐or‐treat alone and always be accompanied by an adult.
  • Only approach homes that are familiar and well‐lit both inside and out.
  • Walk with your head up and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Stay on the sidewalks and out of the streets. Cross only at intersections and designated crosswalks.
  • Respect other people and their property.
  • Motorists should be alert and watch out for pedestrians near the roadway.
  • Report any suspicious individual or criminal activity to an adult or the police.

After trick‐or‐treating:

  • Adults should examine children’s candy before they consume it.

We hope you have a safe and sweet Halloween!
