Halloween Trick-or-Treating 2020 Guidance

Like so many activities and events that have changed this year because of the coronavirus pandemic, Orland Park families can expect Halloween 2020 to look a bit different as well. This year, the Village has approved a plan to accommodate a safe Halloween experience for both participants and non-participants.

Trick-or-treating in Orland Park is from 2-8 p.m. on Saturday, October 31 and those who ARE welcoming trick-or-treaters are asked to leave their porch lights on to indicate they are participating. 

The following are the proposed recommendations to be utilized during this years’ celebration:

  • The Village of Orland Park is asking residents who choose NOT to participate to post this Village-created sign on their door and leave their porch lights off to signify that you are not welcoming Trick or Treaters. This sign can be printed from the Village’s website or picked up at Village Hall, Sportsplex or at the Orland Park Health and Fitness Center during normal business hours. We ask that Trick or Treaters respect the sign postings and the wishes of those homeowners by bypassing any residence where such a sign is posted.
  • We ask that Trick-or-Treaters, as well as homeowners, consider wearing an appropriate COVID-19 mask when interacting with each other.
  • Please do not leave bowls of candy outside for multiple people to touch.
  • The Cook County Health Department is very concerned about large gatherings taking place. Please consider this when making your plans.
  • For those seeking a non-contact activity, the Recreation and Parks Department is sponsoring a 1st Annual Halloween House decorating contest. All displays will be judged and photographed on Monday, Oct. 26 at dusk. Two prizes will be awarded - Best Overall and People's Choice (voted by the most "likes" on social media the week of Oct. 27-29). The winners will also be awarded a sign to proudly display in their front yard! Winners will be announced on Oct. 30. Registration deadline is Friday, Oct. 16.

Please see CDC holiday recommendations for more information.  Please be safe and have a Happy Halloween!
