While the Town of Fuquay-Varina does not have an ordinance that addresses Halloween or days and times of trick or treating, most trick or treaters venture out on October 31st between the hours of 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. within the Town. This time frame on October 31st is when "most" families participate in the annual activity. We do not recommend later times due to safety and visibility concerns.
As to the questions of "What if Halloween falls on a school night"? The Town does not regulate Halloween and do not schedule "trick or treating" as a government entity. As a parent, you decide if your children trick or treat on October 31st to those homes that have lights turned on beckoning treaters. If the lights are not visible or if there is a "no trespassing" sign at a particular home, we recommend avoiding that location.
Remember, always be safe and courteous and have LOTS of fun!
Make sure to put the following events on your "Must Do" Fall event list:
