Trick or Treating in Riverdale Park will be on Wednesday, October 31 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The following are some safety tips so that our children can enjoy the fun of Halloween:

  • Children should always be accompanied by adults.
  • Parents should check all treats to ensure that they are in sealed packages.
  • Costumes should fit properly so that children don't trip and fall.
  • Masks should be worn only if the child can see clearly. Try to avoid masks and use face paint or make-up instead.
  • Reflective costumes and a flashlight are good ideas for trick or treating after dark so motorists can see the children.
  • If you are offering treats on Halloween, please turn on your porch light or display a jack-o-lantern.

Remind your children that vandalism is not what Halloween is about. The Riverdale Park Police Department will be on increased patrol to protect the safety of citizens and property.
