My family is ready to tackle the town with all four of mine just waiting for the moment they can slip on their costumes. A race car driver, a pumpkin, a Dorothy and another pumpkin or cheerleader depending on what she will let us slip on her! We will come into Clarendon Hills downtown business district on Saturday and trick or treat the businesses between 2-4 PM. On Sunday will do it again with all of our neighbors from about 3-7:30. See the Trib article below for other times. Have fun!

To keep children and residents safe this Halloween, many local police departments set trick-or-treating hours to regulate when costumed candy-seekers can travel door-to-door.
Hinsdale, however, has no set hours but recommends children complete their trick-or-treating before dusk on Sunday.
Other local villages set the following hours for Oct. 31:
- Western Springs: 3 to 8 p.m.
- Clarendon Hills: 3 to 7:30 p.m.
- Oak Brook: 3 to 7 p.m.
- La Grange: 3 to 7 p.m.
- La Grange Park: 3 to 8 p.m.
Hinsdale Police also recommend children stay on sidewalks and only cross the street at designated intersections or crosswalks accompanied by an adult.
