House-to-House Trick-or-Treating

House-to-house Trick-or-Treating is recommended between the hours of 6-8 PM, on Sunday, October 31, to coincide with the Statesboro city Trick-or-Treat times. 

All motorists should use caution and obey all traffic laws.

For trick-or-treaters and guardians:

  • We encourage families to attend one of the many safe and fun special events hosted around the County.
  • Only visit familiar, well-lit neighborhoods and homes that have their porch lights on.
  • Adults should accompany their children, and use a flashlight.
  • Encourage children to wear costumes that do not restrict their vision.
  • Walk, don’t run.
  • Consider placing reflective tape on costumes or treat bags.
  • Drivers should observe all traffic laws.
  • Adults should inspect children’s candy before its eaten.

For homeowners:

  • Only hand out commercially wrapped candy.
  • Only turn your porch light on if you welcome trick-or-treaters.
  • Secure your pets.

Happy trick-or-treating, and be safe!
