Children in Dover will be encouraged to do their Trick or Treating from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31.

Dover City Council, meeting Monday night, set 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31 as the time Dover’s children may gather treats door to door Halloween night. In passing the Halloween resolution, council called on parents to accompany their children on their rounds and asked city residents to turn on porch or exterior lights to show they are taking part in the festivities. In turn, children were asked to call only on those homes.
