Madison does not set a specific date / time for trick-or-treating; however, recommends Halloween night (31st) from 4-8 pm. ???? 

The Madison Police Department reminds the community to:

  • Ensure your costume is visible to vehicles and others
  • Do not use toy weapons as part of any costume
  • Do not trick-or-treat alone
  • Only approach homes that are well lit, and only approach the front door
  • Stay on sidewalks and obey traffic signs / signals
  • Carry a flashlight 
  • Let an adult check the candy ???? prior to eating
  • Ensure costumes do not impede movement or vision

Have a happy and safe Halloween!  ????
