COLUMBUS, Ind. — Trick-or-treat hours in Columbus will be 5 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31, according to the mayor’s office. Parents or guardians of trick-or-treaters should:

  • Accompany them.
  • Give them flashlights or glow sticks so they are visible to motorists.
  • Make sure they go to only those homes that are familiar and that have outside lights turned on.
  • Ensure they carefully cross the street.
  • Prevent them from going into a home and make sure they stay on the porch.
  • Inspect candy for tampering before allowing children to eat.
  • Make sure masks do not obstruct their view.
  • Make sure they wear comfortable shoes to prevent falls.
  • Ensure costumes and decorations are made from flame-retardant materials.
