Hampton Roads Trick-or-Treat Guidelines
Wondering what ages can Trick-or-Treat and what the local rules are? Here are the Hampton Roads Trick or Treating Guidelines with links to the full policies (or where they – or any adjustments – will likely be posted closer to Halloween).
Chesapeake– Trick-or-Treating for kids up to age 14, from 6pm until 8pm.
- Chesapeake Police staff will focus on making sure the evening is safe for everyone, not actively seeking out violations of the time or age limits. For example, a 15 year old safely trick or treating with a younger sibling is not going to have any issues. That same child taking pumpkins from porches and smashing them in the street more likely will. The City’s trick-or-treat ordinance was updated in 2019 when City Council voted to remove the (never before used) penalty of jail time and to raise the age limit to 14, making it one of the least restrictive ordinances in all of Hampton Roads.
