Trick-or-Treat Hours in Buffalo Grove

The village has announced times and safety tips for trick-or-treating on Oct. 31.

Children are invited to trick-or-treat in Buffalo Grove from 2-7 p.m. Oct. 31.

Parents or adults are advised to accompany young children, and visit only homes with exterior lights on.

The Halloween festivities end at 7 p.m. because "the late afternoon and early evening schedule is more coducive to the participation to the younger children, for whom the observance was originally intended," according to a resolution from Village President Jeff Braiman.

Parents are advised to examine treats before children eat them, and throw out anything questionable.

Why does Trick or Treat start as early as 2 pm? The elementary schools used to have a half day on Halloween, but no longer. They get out at 3:30. Most households have folks that work until 5 or 6. It's hard to leave work early as it is, and sometimes impossible to be home by 2 pm. I really think the Village needs to rethink these hours.

Ann, many residents with toddlers would prefer to go out during the afternoon when it is light out. School age children are then able to go out after school, also while it is still light out. Many residents are uncomfortable with people coming to their doors at 8:00 or 9:00 P.M., so a 7:00 P.M. cut off is a good compromise.

As a resident of BG, I'm fine with the T or T hours. I like seeing the little ones during daylight when I can see their cute costumes better.

I'll have candy at my house all night long, no matter what hours people want to drop by.
