Little Rock: When to Trick-or-Treat

By October 29, 2010

Follow me on:

Halloween

Don't know when to trick-or-treat?  Cities all over Arkansas are debating whether Saturday or Sunday is ideal. I have a feeling that many kids will be double dipping and trick-or-treating Saturday and Sunday.

Most of the central cities have decided to go ahead and celebrate on Sunday.  Here's a list of which cities are celebrating when.

Saturday, October 30:

Benton, Bryant, Malvern, Searcy, Batesville and Pine Bluff

Sunday, October 31:

Little Rock, North Little Rock, Conway, Maumelle Sherwood and Hot Springs

Why the change?  Many of the cities are saying that they don't want trick-or-treat time to cut into church time. Some are claiming that school is on Monday, and it makes better sense to trick-or-treat on Saturday.

I think Little Rock made the right choice, but I suggest locals be prepared to get a few early arrivals taking advantage of Saturday night.

Just for fun, I looked at all the years Halloween has fallen on a Sunday in my lifetime: 1982, 1993, 1999, 2004, 2010 and hopefully I'll still be alive the next time in happens in  2021.  I only remember changing the day one time, but I guess I would have outgrown trick-or-treating by 1993.

Thanks so much for this info! I’ve called about 7 different numbers for NLR police to find out if they were doing trick or treating tonight or tomorrow night and found my answer here. We missed trick or treating in Zanesville OH because they did it Wednesday instead of on Saturday when Halloween was due to college parties. Thanks again, from my kids! :)
