At an Oregon Village Board meeting earlier this month, trustees discussed setting official Halloween trick-or-treating hours, but for the second year in a row, have chosen not to set official hours due to COVID-19.

The Chamber of Commerce does not set hours, either, its staff told the Observer.

And the Village of Oregon Police Department does not have recommended hours, its support services supervisor Ruti Trace told the Observer.

Traditionally, the village’s trick-or-treating hours are from 5-8 p.m. on Halloween night. For village residents who wish to don costumes and go candy collecting, those hours could still be observed in an unofficial capacity, board trustees decided.

The Town of Oregon also does not set official hours and typically follows the village’s hours, town deputy clerk Stephanie Goth told the Observer.

The Village of Brooklyn does have set hours this year, from 2-6 p.m. on Halloween, Sunday, Oct. 31, its deputy clerk Vicki Olson told the Observer.
