Halloween is Thursday, and the City of Killeen recommends trick-or-treating door-to-door between the hours of 6 and 8 p.m. Children should always be accompanied by an adult.
Households that wish to distribute candy should turn the front porch lights on to indicate they welcome trick-or-treating. Trick-or-treaters should only approach houses that have porch lights on and should never enter a home or a car for a treat.
All candy should be inspected by an adult before children enjoy it.
When planning Halloween costumes, parents are reminded that children’s costumes should not impair vision, hearing or movement, should be flame resistant and should be bright or reflective.
The City of Killeen wishes residents a safe and happy Halloween.
