If your community doesn’t have a policy for neighborhood trick-or-treating, it’s important to follow these tips to ensure everyone has a safe Halloween.

  • Make sure your HOA’s walking areas and stairs are well lit and free of obstacles that could cause falls.
  • Remind homeowners to keep candlelit jack o’ lanterns and other open flames away from doorsteps, walkways, and landings. Instead, place them on sturdy tables and keep them out of reach of pets and small children.
  • Remind residents to drive slower while kids are out and about trick-or-treating.
  • Is your HOA the place to be for trick-or-treaters? If so, more people means more cars. Refer to your CC&R’s to know the rules on parking in your association including where visitors can park and what kind of passes may be needed.

As communities search for ways to keep children safe and handle an increase in traffic this Halloween, trunk-or-treating is becoming a widely-popular alternative to walking from house to house. A tradition most commonly found in southern states where neighbors use a church or community parking lot and decorate car trunks to welcome trick-or-treaters.
