It's finally here! Halloween! Tonight is the big night of Trick or Treating fun throughout Lafayette and West Lafayette. We thought it would be fun to put together a check list of important items you MUST remember on this special night. Preparation is key to a successful Halloween night! Please note Lafayette's Halloween hours are 6-8pm and West Lafayette does not have set hours.

Trick or Treat Check-List (adults and children!) for those heading out to embark on a spooky fun Halloween Night!

  1. Make sure you have a fun Halloween bag that is big enough for a ton of chocolate and sugary candy.
  2. Wear or bring along a warm pair of socks, gloves and a hat as Indiana weather can be fickle.
  3. Bright colored costumes not only will make you stand out, but a safety tip for those driving by to see you.
  4. Halloween is more fun with a group of friends! The more the merrier, plus you can swap candy throughout the night!

Handing out Treats at Home Check-List

  1. What is better than having the best candy on the block? Nothing! People for years will remember your household if you give out the sweetest treats!
  2. Make sure you have enough candy to go around! Stock up. You don't want to run out of candy before the last Trick-or-Treater arrives as you may miss the best costume!
  3. Dress up! The scarier the better! Trick-or-Treating is all about mischief and the more diverse, scary costume, the better!
  4. Decorate your home with artificial spider webs, plastic skeletons, jack-o-lanterns and more to really get into the Halloween spirit and make your house a mecca for Trick-or-Treaters.
We hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween night! To check out the list of Halloween events taking place in Lafayette-West Lafayette visit
