Eau Claire Trick-or-Treat hours

Posted:

Eau Claire (Press Release) - The "Trick-or-Treating" hours for the City of Eau Claire will be from 5-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31, 2012.

The Eau Claire Police Department wishes to pass along these safety tips to ensure that participants will have a happy and safe Halloween:

  • Children's visits should be made from 5:00p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
  • Residents who wish to welcome trick-or-treaters should leave a door or porch light on. Children should be advised to only visit homes with outside lights on.
  • Children who participate in trick-or-treating should be supervised by a responsible person who is not trick-or-treating.
  • Children should only cross at crosswalks or intersections of streets. Never cross a street from between parked cars, mid-block or run into the street.
  • Motorists should exercise extreme caution during the hours of Halloween activities and be aware of unpredictable movements by children.
  • Halloween costumes should be light in color, short enough to prevent tripping and made of non-flammable material. For greater visibility, costumes may be decorated with reflective tape or glow sticks. Trick-or-treaters should also carry a flashlight.
  • Facial makeup should be used whenever possible as masks tend to obstruct vision.
  • Instruct children not to eat their treats until a responsible adult has inspected them.
  • Only give and accept wrapped or packaged treats.
  • Keep costumed children away from pets as the costume may frighten the pet.

The Eau Claire Police Department wishes you a SAFE and FUN Halloween!
