City of Tonawanda
Trick-or-treating hours in the city will be 5:30 until 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Mayor Rick Davis announced.
Davis issued tips for trick-or-treaters, including never go trick-or-treating alone; plan and review your trick-or-treating route with your family before you begin; don’t stray from your planned route; never go inside a house. Accept treats only at the door; don’t eat any candy until you get home, and be sure to have an adult check your candy before you eat it.
The mayor also advised that everybody should wear a highly-visible or reflective costume and carry a flashlight when trick-or-treating at night; stay on sidewalks and walkways; walk, don’t run in your costume because you might trip and injure yourself; and carry a cell phone in case of emergency.
