The Village of Glenview

Happy Halloween 2019

​Keep Glenview's youngest ghouls and goblins safe this Halloween. Trick or Treating hours in Glenview are 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, October 31, rain or shine.

Keep these tips in mind as your kids haunt the neighborhood:

  • Accompany children (or send an older sibling) and make sure they don't enter anyone's home without your permission.
  • Use makeup instead of a mask so your child's view is not obstructed.
  • Map out a trick-or-treat route for your children to follow.
  • Make sure kids cross only at corners -- and look in all directions first. Remind them to use sidewalks or walk facing traffic so approaching cars can be seen.
  • Caution them against crossing the street between parked cars, where driver's can't see them.
  • Warn children not to eat any goodies until you've had a chance to inspect them. When in doubt, throw it out.
