Northbrook's Official Trick-or-Treat hours are from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Halloween, October 31. To welcome Trick-or-Treaters, switch on your porch lights or any exterior lights.
Here are a few safety tips for parents to remind their trick-or-treaters:
Walk in groups or with an adult and stay on the sidewalks.
Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.
Bring a flashlight when heading out after dusk.
Examine all treats before eating them and eat only factory-wrapped treats.
Wear well-fitting masks, costumes and comfortable shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips and falls.
Use a battery powered candle to light your pumpkin.
Drivers are reminded to watch out for Trick-or-Treaters.
Please welcome young people who carry the official UNICEF collection boxes. Halloween has been recognized as National UNICEF Day and children have shared the holiday by Trick-or-Treating for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
