What are the Indianapolis, IN Area 2018 Trick-or-Treat Times & Dates?

Halloween 2018 is on Wednesday, October 31st so we hope that you have your costume all set to go for a night of trick-or-treating fun.  As kids of all ages take to the streets of Indianapolis and the surrounding communities in search of stockpiles of chocolate and sweets it is important for everyone to stay safe.  That is why we recommend motorists drive slower, turn their lights on earlier in the day and stay alert for kids crossing the street unpredictably.  Children should always trick-or-treat in groups or under adult supervision, have a flashlight or glow sticks to help them stay easily visible at night and always obey all traffic signals and stop signs.  Take a look at the Indianapolis area trick-or-treat times and dates below and have a safe and spooky night of trick-or-treating from all of us here at Royal South Mazda.
