Local municipalities set residential trick-or-treating

Since Halloween falls on a Sunday this year, all four Jackson County municipalities have opted to have residential trick-or-treating on Oct. 30.

In 1991, the Seymour Board of Public Works and Safety set trick-or-treat hours for Halloween night unless the holiday lands on a Sunday night. Then it’s held on the Saturday night before Halloween.

That rule has remained in place ever since. This year, it will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 30.

The same hours and date apply in Brownstown and Medora, as the town councils in those communities recently took action on the matter.

In Crothersville, though, the town council chose to set the hours for 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 30.

Residents wishing to participate in trick-or-treating should leave an exterior light on at the front door.
