Neighborhood trick-or-treating tips:
- In Central Florida, trick or treating officially begins as soon as the sun sets on Halloween, October 31.
- Who is handing out candy this Halloween? If your neighbor is displaying Halloween decorations and their indoor lights are on, then you can almost guarantee they will be handing out candy on Halloween.
- This year, you may see more people placing bowls outside on a table to stay safe and distant.
- Bring hand sanitizer, a mask, and consider waiting until later for your kids to eat the candy they collect.
- Trick-or-treating etiquette 101: limit to one or two pieces. It’s the polite thing to do.
