Trick or Treat
Ghosts and goblins, Minions, witches, movie heroes, clowns, and other adorably attired youngsters will arrive at our doorsteps looking for a treat (few ever ask for or want a trick) on October 31st. Halloween falls on a Saturday, making it especially nice for parents who can take their children out trick or treating during daylight hours. Each local community sets trick-or-treat hours and most communities also post safety tips to keep youngsters safe. To help our customers, neighbors, and friends enjoy a safe and happy Halloween, below we share the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention list of Halloween safety tips along with a schedule of trick or treat hours for our local communities: Trick or Treat Village of Glenview – Saturday, October 31, 2015 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. Village of Northbrook – Saturday, October 31, 2015 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. Village of Skokie – Saturday, October 31, 2015 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. Village of Wilmette – Saturday, October 31, 2015 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. City of Evanston – Saturday, October 31, 2015 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Village of Niles – Saturday, October 31, 2015 noon to 4:00 p.m. at Golf Mill Mall Village of Morton Grove – Saturday, October 31, 2015 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. CDC list of Halloween Safety Tips S Swords, knives and other costume accessories should be short, soft & flexible A Avoid trick-or-treating alone.
