Village announces trick-or-treating hours

Halloween trick-or-treating hours in the Village of Tinley Park will be from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31.
 
Due to COVID-19, the Village is making several recommendations to ensure everyone has a safe time this year. Trick-or-treaters and homeowners are encouraged to wear masks when interacting with each other, and homeowners shouldn’t leave bowls of candy outside. These measures will help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Trick-or-treaters are also asked to be respectful of other groups and maintain proper distance at all times.
 
Homeowners who don’t want to hand out candy this year can download this sign and hang it on their front doors or windows. These signs will let trick-or-treaters know not to ring the bell and to be respectful of the sign and the homeowner’s wishes.
 
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) also recommends that only household members trick-or-treat together and use hand sanitizer frequently. Trick-or-treaters should also wash their hands thoroughly before consuming any candy they collected.
