Trick-or-Treat for the City of Marion will be held from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm on Saturday, October 31.

In 1999, Marion City Council passed legislation which set "Trick-or-Treat" night for the City of Marion to occur on October 31 of each year between the hours of  5:30 pm and 7:30 pm, unless October 31 falls on a Sunday.  If October 31 falls on a Sunday, "Trick-or-Treat" night will be observed on the preceding Saturday.  As a result of the passage of this Ordinance, the date for Trick-or-Treat cannot be moved unless legislation is presented before full City Council.

Halloween Safety Tips:

  • Trick-or-Treat in a group or with an adult.
  • Accept treats only in doorways.  Never go into a house.
  • Visit homes that have the porch light on.
  • Carry a flashlight.
  • Walk, don't run, and stay on sidewalks.
  • Look both ways before crossing streets and only cross the street at corners.
  • Wear reflective clothing.
  • Be sure your costume is not too long ... you don't want to trip or fall.
  • Shoes should fit comfortably (even if they don't match your costume).
  • Carry only flexible swords, knives, and props.
  • Consider using "face paint" instead of a mask.  If you wear a mask, be sure you can see out of it clearly.
  • Be sure your parents always know where you are going to trick-or-treat and stay in familiary neighborhoods.
  • Do not ride a bicycle.  Your costume might get tangled in the wheels.
  • Keep away from candles and open fires.
  • Be cautious of animals.
  • Let parents check your treats before you eat them.
  • Never eat unwrapped candy, opened candy, or fruit given to you on Halloween.
