Halloween is Tuesday, October 31, and trick-or-treating in Kaukauna is on Tuesday from 4-7 PM.  We hope that everyone has a fun and safe evening!  Please read and share the following safety tips with your kids!

  • Plan your route ahead of time.
  • Trick or treat in familiar neighborhoods.
  • Carry a flashlight with fresh batteries after dark.
  • Always trick or treat in groups, accompanied by an adult.
  • Stay on the sidewalks and out of the streets. Cross only at intersections and designated crosswalks.
  • No running.
  • Don’t trample through flower beds and gardens.
  • Walk with your head up and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Only visit well-lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses.
  • Don’t enter any houses unless you know the people.
  • Don’t approach unfamiliar pets and animals.
  • Don’t cut across yards and stay out of backyards.
  • Follow traffic signals and don’t jaywalk.
  • Never accept rides from strangers.
  • Respect other people and their property.
  • Be polite and say “thank you”.
  • Don’t eat any candy until it’s inspected for tampering under bright lights.

  • Report any suspicious or criminal activity to an adult or the police.
  • Consider having a party instead of Trick or Treating.

Happy Halloween!
