Halloween will be here sooner than you think and we look forward to seeing all of the people (from the youngest to the oldest!) and their different costumes being out and about in the Village of Colfax. Halloween this year is on Friday, October 31st, 2014, and the hours for Trick-or Treating will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
As a reminder, a universal sign of a residence participating in Trick-or-Treating has to do with their porch light. If you see a light on, it generally means the residence is welcoming and greeting Trick-or-Treaters. If you do not see a light on, the residence is most likely not participating this year.
We want everyone to have a great time, but most of all, be safe! As it gets dark, It would be beneficial to wear something reflective incorporated into your costume if possible. If not, you could carry a flashlight or light stick so you are more visible. Please be alert in regards to the extra traffic on the roads and make sure you can be seen. Use sidewalks where available, and try to use crosswalks when crossing the roads. For those citizens that are driving around during this time, please be extra careful as you pay attention to the surroundings and people that are out and about. The saying goes “look twice”- and on this day, we are leaning more toward “look 3 or 4 times.”
Officers will be on duty in the Village during this time, and if you have any questions or concerns, please get a hold of us!
Thank you, be safe, and have fun!
