What are the Trick-or-Treating Hours in La Grange for Halloween 2013?

Trick-or-treaters have between 3 and 7 p.m. to collect their loot in La Grange.

It's that time—time for some spooky, oddball and sugar-heavy Halloween-related activities, which all lead up to the epic night of trick-or-treating on Thursday, Oct. 31.

The Village of La Grange has set its trick-or-treating hours for Halloween this year. Trick-or-treaters can be out ringing doorbells between 3 and 7 p.m. 

The village will also host its annual Halloween Walk on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Merchants will give out treats following a trick or treat parade, and hold costume contests, face painting, pet photos, crafts and more. Read more about it here.

Stay safe

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offer a number of safety tips to make Halloween fun for kids.

General safety guidelines from the CDC:

Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible.

Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.

Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see children.

Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats eaten.

Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help children see and others see them. Always walk and don't run from house to house.

Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.

Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever possible.

Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.

Lower the risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses.

Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe.

Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.

Enter homes only if you're with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Don't stop at dark houses. Never accept rides from strangers.

Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers

Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.
