The City of Wooster’s designated trick-or-treat is Saturday, Oct. 28, from 4 to 8 p.m. Wooster is trying to arrange one citywide day of trick-or-treat.  Wooster has periodically been asked by some residents about dedicating one day for the entire city to hold trick‐or‐treat events.

The city has also found that many neighborhoods prefer to establish their own trick‐or‐treat events around Halloween. The most common day selected by neighborhoods over the years has been the last Saturday of the month.

Wooster is encouraging all trick‐or‐treat events be scheduled between 4 and 8 p.m. on the last Saturday of October and will recognize that day and time as the city‐wide trick‐or‐treat event.

The city says that it understands that not all neighborhoods will observe the suggested date and time, having one, city‐wide recognized event will help with police coverage and hopefully provide a safe and fun Halloween for all, the statement reads. Montgomery said the city will continue to keep a list on the city website of any neighborhoods or organizations who prefer to establish their own trick‐or‐treat events around Halloween and who notify the city.
