Local towns announce hours for Oct. 31 trick-or-treating

Sunday, October 20, 2013

The 2013 Halloween trick-or-treat schedule will kick off with the annual downtown Greencastle trick-or-treat event from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31 on the courthouse square.

Local businesses and offices welcome costumed trick-or-treaters during that two-hour period.

Meanwhile, individual Putnam County communities have established trick-or-treat hours. All community trick-or-treat hours limit activity to the night of the holiday itself on Thursday, Oct. 31.

Specific community trick-or-treat hours are:

-- Greencastle -- 4-8 p.m. (starting at 4 p.m. to coincide with the downtown event).

-- Fillmore -- 5-8 p.m.

-- Bainbridge -- 6-8 p.m.

-- Roachdale -- 6-8 p.m.

-- Russellville -- Not yet announced (although in past years the hours have been 6-8 p.m.).

-- Cloverdale -- 6-8:30 p.m.

As is the custom locally, residents welcoming trick-or-treaters are urged to turn on a porch light during the appropriate period. Likewise, Halloween revelers are asked to skip homes without an outside light illuminated.
