Block Party registration process

October 15, 2019

Block Party Registration

The City welcomes the opportunity to supply residents with warning cones and signs for neighborhood "block parties" during the Halloween season. Applications must be received within three working days of the scheduled event.

Residents are reminded that block parties are not allowed on October 31, or on major thoroughfares.  This policy assures that proper traffic flow is maintained, especially for emergency vehicles.

Halloween safety tips for kids and homeowners
  • Younger trick-or-treaters should be supervised by an adult.
  • Older children should trick-or-treat in large groups, if they are not accompanied by an adult.
  • Parents should know the route their older children are taking and they should stay in touch with the group.
  • Trick-or-treaters should only visit homes that are well-lighted and that are obviously welcoming Halloween guests.
  • Trick-or-treaters should carry flashlights and use reflective tape on their costumes so that motorists can see them.
  • Trick-or-treaters should stay on sidewalks and obey pedestrian rules.
  • Children should not eat any trick-or-treat candy until it is inspected by an adult.
  • Light your home well.
  • Remove obstacles from your front porch and yards so that visitors don’t stumble or trip.
