Trick-or-Treating hours for the City of Kirtland:

Monday, October 31 - 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (We ask that all City resident households participating in trick-or-treating turn on their porch lights promptly at 6:00 PM and turn them off promptly at 8:00 PM or when the candy is gone, whichever comes first.)

Halloween Safety Recommendations:

Costume Safety

  • Choose non-toxic face paint and make-up instead of masks, but if masks are used, make sure they fit properly and have holes large enough for mouth and eyes.
  • Choose costumes that are marked flame retardant.
  • Wear light-colored clothing at night, short enough to prevent tripping. Add reflective tape or reflectors to dark colored costumes.
  • Make props such as daggers or swords out of cardboard, rather than metal or wood.

Trick-or-Treating Safety

  • Give and accept wrapped or packaged candy.
  • Avoid homemade treats from strangers.
  • Have children bring treats home for adult inspection before they are eaten. Check treats for signs of tampering before allowing children to eat them.
  • Adults should accompany small and elementary school age children when they are trick-or-treating and send older children in groups.
  • Adults and children should carry a flashlight or glow stick.
  • Have children stay within the neighborhood; only visit homes you know.
  • Watch for traffic.
  • Keep costumed children away from pets. The pet may not recognize the children and become frightened.

The City of Kirtland wishes everyone a Happy Halloween!
