Halloween Safety

Trick-or-Treating in the Village will be on Monday, October 31, 2022. While there are no mandated hours, the Downers Grove Police Department recommends trick-or-treating during daylight hours.  Remember, curfew prohibits anyone under 17 years of age to be on the street after 11:00 p.m. on weeknights. 


  • Kids should trick-or-treat with parents or in groups-never alone.
  • Wear light colored or reflective clothing.  Masks should not obstruct vision.
  • Carry a flashlight after dark.
  • Stay on sidewalks and never walk in the street.
  • Cross streets carefully and always at corners-no jaywalking.
  • Limit trick-or-treating to your immediate neighborhood.
  • Trick-or-treat only at homes where outside lights are on.
  • Only accept treats that are wrapped and securely sealed.
  • Parents, check your child's treats before eating. 
  • Vandalism is a crime.  Halloween is not an excuse to damage or destroy someone else's property.
