Halloween Trick TreatThe City of Page has not set specific designated times for trick‐or‐treating, traditionally trick‐or‐treating in Page is from 4 to 7 p.m. Halloween is a festive time for all, as ghouls and goblins seem to come to live in every neighborhood in Page. However we must also be safe and smart and many of our children celebrate this fun‐filled evening.

Please read the following safety tips:

Costumes Should Be Fun and Safe

  • Keep costumes short so children can walk safely.
  • Purchase costumes that are flame retardant.
  • Use make‐up or face paint rather than masks, so children can see more easily.
  • Make sure costumes are light colored or put reflective tape on the front and back so children can be easily seen.

Safety Tips for Parents, Guardians and Older Children

  • HalloweenTreatsPlan a trick‐or‐treat route ahead of time.
  • Have a responsible adult accompany children.
  • Use a flash light or glow stick to increase visibility.
  • Stay on well‐lit streets, look both ways before crossing streets and cross at intersections whenever possible.
  • Visit well‐lit homes.
  • Never let children enter a house to collect treats.
  • Carry a cell phone for quick communication.
  • Put a slip of paper with your address and cell phone number in your child’s pocket.
  • Do not run, walk from house to house.
  • Don’t allow children to sample treats until they are home and goodies have been examined by an adult.

TRICK‐OR‐TREATING CAN BE FUN, BUT CONSIDER THESE “SPOOKTACULAR” ALTERNATIVES:

  • Host a Halloween party in your home and invite the children in your neighborhood and your children’s school friends!
  • Attend the costumed Bicycle Parade & Harvest Fest (5 – 10 p.m. at the Elm Street Mall Parking lot)

The costumed bike parade begins at 5 p.m. (The $5 registration fee benefits Page Community Swimming Pool).

Prizes will be awarded for the best costume, and there will be games and contests throughout the evening. To register, visit the Lake Powell Chronicle at:

The City of Page wishes everyone a safe and “spooktacular” Halloween.
