After 8 is too Late! Please trick or treat before 8:00 p.m. 8 Reasons after 8 is too late!

1. After 8 Is Too Late -  By going out before 8:00 p.m. children are safer and more visible to vehicle traffic and other pedestrians. CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) indicates that the risk for childhood pedestrian deaths and injuries is higher on Halloween evening when compared with all other evenings.

2. After 8 Is Too Late - Children want to get as many treats as possible, so in going from house to house children are likely to cross mid-street rather than crossing at intersections with stop signs and traffic signals in place. Daylight helps to decrease chances of pedestrian-vehicle accidents, going out before 8:00 p.m. will help to further decrease that chance!
 
 3. After 8 Is Too Late Older children tend to trick or treat later in the evening and are likely not supervised by adults, going out before 8:00 p.m. may be a more enjoyable experience for younger children!

4.  After 8 Is Too Late - Giving out treats before 8:00 p.m. is safer for those giving out treats.

5.  After 8 Is Too Late -  Turn off your porch light at 8:00 p.m. to deter people from approaching your house for treats.

6. After 8 Is Too Late -  Darkness makes it difficult for children and adults to notice other risks such as animals, slippery leaves, fences, toys and other items left in the yard.

7. After 8 Is Too Late - Not everyone is out to have clean fun on Halloween, some are out for mischief which tends to occur in the later evening hours.

8. After 8 Is Too Late - 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. is the Candy Crawl in Downtown Concord on Friday, October 30th! You don’t want to miss this early and free event!
