Local communities are getting ready for Halloween. At last week’s meeting, the Goldsboro City Council approved its annual Halloween Proclamation as read by Mayor Pro Tem Taj Polack. The proclamation suggests:
- Residents who wish to participate in trick or treat are asked to leave a porch light or other outdoor light on during these hours.
- Parents are asked to explain to children that homes with no outdoor light are not participating in trick or treat and that these homes should be passed by during these activities.
- It is recommended for the safety of our children that parental supervision be extended to include insistence that children do not consume any treats until closely examined by their parents. Parents should follow the rule “if in doubt – throw it out” where evidence of tampering with packaging or surfaces of consumable products exist.
The City of Goldsboro’s trick or treat hours are set for 6 – 8 PM on Sunday, October 31st.
The County of Wayne plans to follow Goldsboro and hold official trick or treat hours from 6 – 8 PM on October 31st.
Elsewhere, the Town of Mount Olive has set its trick or treat hours for 6 – 8 PM on Saturday, October 30th.
