York County’s Recommended Trick-Or-Treat Hours and Ages Announced

In York County, trick-or-treating is recommended for children ages 12 and under from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, October 31 – Halloween! York County Fire Chief Steve Kopczynski and York-Poquoson Sheriff Ron Montgomery offer the following trick-or-treat safety tips:

  • All costumes, wigs, and accessories should be fire-resistant.
  • If children are allowed out after dark, fasten reflective tape to their costumes and
    bags or give them glow sticks.
  • Consider wearing bright and/or light-colored costumes, which are easier to see at
  • Opt for non-toxic Halloween makeup over masks, which can obscure vision.
  • Have an adult accompany younger children.
  • Residents are asked to turn on porch lights to identify homes that wish to receive
    trick-or-treaters. Please avoid houses where porch lights are off.
  • Teach your children never to enter a stranger’s home or car.
  • Tell your children not to eat any treats until they return home, and take care to avoid
    any food allergies.
  • Remind children to be careful, watch for traffic, and to use flashlights.
  • Motorists should watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs, and
    enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully.
