Many people are wondering if the city has a specific day and time for trick-or-treating in Wichita Falls this Halloween.

While the city does not set an official day or time for children to trick-or-treat, they do recommend that those who are planning to go trick-or-treating door-to-door and those who will be at home to hand out candy, that they do so the evening of Halloween, October 31.

The Wichita Falls Police Department suggests a time of 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for trick-or treating.
