2016 Trick-or-treat times in Dallas TX
It’s almost October, which means that it’s nearly time to break out the costumes and collect some candy! If you’re into trick-or-treating (or you have kids that are into it), Dallas is a great place to be. There are several places to trick-or-treat in the Dallas area, and there is also a reasonable amount of time that kids can go out after sundown. If you’re curious what this year’s (2016) hours are for trick-or-treating, we have some details. Grab your costumes, your pillowcase (because we all know pillowcases can hold more than the traditional bucket) and head out it your DFW community!
Official trick-or-treat hours in the Dallas area
The DFW area usually hosts its trick-or-treat on Halloween night, which falls on a Monday this year. There aren’t any specific hours set for children to go out and knock on doors (nor has there been in the past). Typically, homes that hand out goodies should expect kids to knock around sundown, which will be around 6:40 p.m. in Dallas. A few hours later – around 9 p.m. – is when most of the festivities will die down, and it should be completely finished by 9:30 p.m. If you’re handing out candy/other fun items and don’t want trick-or-treaters knocking after a certain time, it’s recommended that you turn off your light (this signifies your home is no longer participating).
Unique Halloween costume ideas for 2016
If you and yours are going to partake in trick-or-treat, you’ll probably want to dress up. There are plenty of popular options, but if you want to be a bit more adventurous, here are our suggestions:
Snapchat Filter – SnapChat has risen in popularity and has offered an abundance of filters (some more well-known than others). If you choose one you’re fond of, people will be sure to get it.
Emoji – Whether you have a friend and want to go as the tap dancing girls, or are riding solo and want to be the heart-eyed cat, you’re bound to find an emoji to fit your Halloween style.
Popular Film Character – There have been plenty of great films this past year, some of which are throwbacks to the past (like Ghostbusters and Suicide Squad). Why not break into one of those characters?
Popular TV Character – Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and plenty of other crowd-favorite TV shows have continued to draw attention, making TV a good place to look for your costume.
If none of those strike your fancy, go all out on one of the more traditional costumes, like a witch, ghost or zombie.
