Halloween 2019

Halloween Trick-or-Treating Hours 

The designated trick or treating hours in the City of Joliet for Thursday, October 31, 2019, will be 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

As you plan for a safe and happy Halloween, please keep in mind these safety tips:​

  • Houses wanting to be visited by "Trick or Treaters" should leave porch lights on.

  • Parents should accompany all young children while "Trick or Treating".

  • "Trick or Treaters" should only visit houses and apartments of people they know.

  • Children should take their treats home for parents to inspect before eating.

  • Children should be reminded to walk, not run , between houses and use sidewalks when available. 

  • Remind children to practice caution when crossing the street and cross only at intersections when traffic is clear. 

  • Motorists should be careful and alert during and around these hours.

  • Parents need to purchase, or make costumes, that are light and bright enough to be clearly visible to motorists. 

  • To avoid a truly scary Halloween – think a house fire – avoid illuminating your carved pumpkins with real flames. Halloween poses a special risk because people tend to place jack-o-lanterns by their front door or in windows, where they can easily come in contact with flammable materials or get knocked over. For a similar look minus the danger, use battery-operated lights, like LED votives.​

Following these safety tips will ensure that we all have a safe and happy Halloween.
