Official trick-or-treating hours in Springfield are set for Wednesday from 4:30 to 8pm.
Police are urging drivers to be cautious during those hours and watch out for children crossing streets on their quest for candy. Hours may vary in other communities, so check with your local officials. In Southern Illinois, some communities moved their trick-or-treating hours to Tuesday evening to avoid a rainy forecast on Wednesday.
But in Springfield, Wednesday evening’s weather looks to be dry and cool for the trick-or-treaters.
