The pumpkins are carved, the costumes are done, and the kids are ready to get their trick-or-treat on this Halloween! So, when should you plan on taking the kiddos out on October 31st?

Well, the City of Lake Charles recommends that trick-or-treat activities end at 8pm. and that all children be home by 8:30pm, unless they are at a supervised function sponsored by other parents or civic organizations.

As fun as All Hallows Eve is, it's important to stay safe and celebrate the holiday using these great tips and guidelines from the Louisiana State Police.

You can check out other events going on in SWLA for Halloween 2016 on the Visit Lake Charles website.
