Skokie Trick-Or-Treat Hours of Operation, Halloween Health Guidelines 2021


SKOKE, IL – Village officials have designated Skokie’s Halloween times from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. this year.

Cheaters were encouraged not to ring the doorbell before or after these hours and to limit treats to homes with porch lights on.

The village health service staff suggested that residents consider the Halloween 2021 Health and Safety Recommendations.

Public health officials suggest that children and others dressing up for Halloween incorporate a face mask into the costume, but avoid wearing a costume mask over a mask to prevent the spread of COVID-19 due to the risk that it prevents breakage.

IDPH orientation for neighborhood tips includes the following:

Outdoor areas are safer for trick-or-treating than closed indoor areas, such as apartment buildings, which pose a greater risk of transmission. It is strongly recommended to make treats in small groups for a short time at each door, as opposed to large groups. If outdoor trick-or-treating isn’t possible, there are steps people can take to make indoor trick-or-treat safer. Guests indoors should open doors and windows as much as possible to promote increased ventilation, and masks should be worn properly. Hand washing is important, especially for those who distribute and receive treats.

Households who did not want treats coming to their door were encouraged to turn off their exterior lights or post signs on their doors informing visitors that they are not participating.

The day before Halloween night, 45 local businesses will be handing out candy and other surprises in downtown Skokie Trick-or-Treat.

Music from a DJ is scheduled at the southeast corner of Lincoln Avenue and Oakton Street, with local businesses showcasing more than 300 Halloween-themed posts designed by students at Skokie School District 69.

Official candy bags are available the week of October 25 or the day of the event at Al’s Cycle Shop, Crafty Beaver Home Center, Edward Jones Investments, Indigo Home Remodeling, Law Offices of Naheed Amdani, Mini-Man Monkey Brains, Skokie Chamber of Commerce or Swift Child Care Center, according to an announcement from village staff.
