The Eagle River City Council does not designate specific hours for Trick or Treating in the City of Eagle River for Halloween on October 31st. The Police Department encourages parents to bring their children to the Northland Pines Middle School for the Eagle River Lions Club Hallogras Children's Halloween Party. This year's event will run from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on October 31st. Additionally Our Savior Lutheran Church located at 223 Silver Lake Road will be hosting a Trunk or Treat even from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM in the parking lot of the church.
For those who wish to Trick or Treat door to door in the city, the Police Department encourages going only to residences where a porch light is turned on and not disturbing residents not participating in Trick or Treating. Parents are encouraged to make sure children can see clearly through any masks they may be wearing and to incorporate reflective material in the costumes if possible. Parents are also highly encouraged to examine all treats prior to allowing their children to consume them.
Children should be warned against entering the residence of strangers and the use of flashlights while walking to increase visibility is recommended.
The City of Eagle River and the Police Department hopes that everyone has a safe and fun Halloween.
