Halloween Recommendations and Reminders
Ultimately, each resident must make the decision as to whether or not they would like to engage in Halloween activities, and if so, how.
Halloween is creeping up around the corner! While the Village annually recommends that residents limit trick-or-treating to 3-7 p.m., there is no official policy or ordinance in place with designated or enforceable hours, beyond recommended guidance.
- If you choose to participate in trick-or-treating on Halloween night, please take extra precautions to maintain social distance, wear masks, avoid touching of the face (mouth/nose/eyes), and use hand sanitizer often. Additional reminders and recommendations from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the CDC regarding Halloween and trick-or-treating during the COVID-19 pandemic are available at www.villageoflombard.org/halloween.
Respecting Fellow Neighbors
- Citizens not wishing to participate in trick-or-treating may turn off their porch lights and close their door to indicate their non-participation. Residents may also display a sign indicating that their house is not participating in trick-or-treating.
Residents are reminded not to approach homes or knock on doors of homes that have “no trick-or-treating” signs posted, or homes that have their exterior lights off and front doors closed. Please treat all neighbors with respect and courtesy.
