Middle Georgia Trick or Treating

Are you ready for a ghoulish good time again this year? Ready to hand out some candy, check out all the fun costumes, and enjoy spending a minute with all the excited kids? If so, your wait is nearly over as Halloween will be here very soon.

It is important to know where you kids will be, who they will be with, and when you expect them home…safety first again this year!

For the communities that publicly posted their trick or treat times in Houston County GA for Tuesday, October 31st, here they are:

  • Byron – 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Centerville – 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • Perry – 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • Warner Robins – 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

For the remainder of the communities, dusk until around 8:00 p.m. is always a good rule of thumb if times have not been posted.

Staying extra vigilant while driving and being aware of suspicious activity in your neighborhood is paramount to keeping the kiddies safe as they run to and fro chasing down as much candy as they can this week!  It is also a great idea to have a responsible adult with the kids at all times.  Have fun but be safe!

Middle Georgia Halloween Events Information

As you can see there are some excellent Middle Georgia Halloween events happening in the county again this year! There are also a variety of harvest festivals and alternative celebration options for consumers who do not wish to participate in Halloween activities. Whatever you decide to do this season, be safe and have a blast!

It is important to remember that while these Middle Georgia Halloween events are fun, many are disorienting with dim, no blinking lights, loud noises, dark spaces, and sudden sight scares so be sure to not attend if you have a medical condition that is activated or enhanced by any of these factors.

Check out these Halloween events in Middle Georgia then come back and provide details on whether you were scared or spared!
