Happy Halloween

Trick-or-treating in the Village of Morton Grove will be held on Monday, October 31st from 3:30pm-7:30pm. 

The Village also asks that you be respectful of your neighbors while trick-or-treating only go to homes of people you know. If you have questions regarding trick-or-treating hours, please contact the Morton Grove Police Department at 847-470-5200.  The Morton Grove Police Department recommends that parents take a few simple, but important, steps to help ensure their children's safety during Halloween.


1. Young children should be accompanied by a responsible adult while Trick-or-Treating.

2. Make sure that any masks that are worn do not block the vision of your children. They should be able to see well both in front and to each side.

3. If you are Trick-or-Treating after dark, please use reflective tape on costumes and carry a flashlight.

4. For parents of older children, you should know the routes they are planning to take and set a time for them to be home. It is strongly recommended that children go out in groups rather than by themselves.

5. Review the contents of all treats collected by your children before allowing it to be eaten. Remove any suspicious treats. If any treats show signs of possible tampering, please call the police department.
