The Town of Bonnyville has made details regarding the ‘Halloween Curfew’, crystal clear.

At Monday’s (Sept. 22) Council meeting, it was clarified that trick or treating does not strictly finish at 7:00 pm The town bylaw, which has been in place since 1929, states that children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian in order to trick or treat after 7 O’clock. Individuals under 16 years of age that aren’t under parental supervision past 7:00 pm, will be asked to return home.

Trick or treaters are being asked to respect the wishes of all local residences and not disturb the households who have their porch lights turned out after 7:00 pm.
