Halloween is fast approaching, and that means costumed kids will soon be out trick-or-treating to collect some candy. The city of Naperville does not have any ordinance designating specific times for trick-or-treating. But with the COVID-19 pandemic still ongoing, the city does acknowledge not everyone may be comfortable opening their doors to trick-or-treaters. To that end, they’ve designed signs for residents to place in their windows, doors and other visible areas notifying trick-or-treaters whether they are handing out treats. Those signs can be found at the Municipal Center or downloaded on the city’s website.
