The children of Beach Park are entitled to the fun and festivity associated with the observance of the Halloween "Trick or Treat" custom - going from door to door in the immediate neighborhood, displaying their costumes and requesting "treats".

The village has designated Sunday, October 28, 2018 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm as Trick or Treat Day in the Village of Beach Park.

As there is increased possibility of accidents due to the general carefree spirit of children at this particular time and when costumes and masks may make them indistinguishable in the darkness, the late afternoon and early evening schedule is more conducive to the participation of the younger children, for whom the observance was originally intended. Further, this date and time coincides with the surrounding communities of Waukegan and Zion.

The village requests that young children be accompanied by parents or other responsible adults. Householders should indicate their willingness to welcome children by keeping their porch or exterior lights on and youngsters should only call on homes so lighted.

The Village of Beach Park encourages the cooperation of all citizens, young and old, in making this a happy and safe occasion for our children.
