Beggar’s Night, or Trick or Treat, is set for Oct. 28 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Each year, the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission sets the Trick or Treat date for cities in central Ohio. When Halloween, Oct. 31, falls on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, Trick or Treat is held on the Thursday before Oct. 31.

MORPC developed the “Halloween algorithm” in 1993 to provide a unified Trick or Treat date for central Ohio communities. When considering what to recommend, MORPC decided that hosting Beggar’s Night on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday evening could interfere with weekend football and worship services, as well as increase the likelihood of impaired drivers being on the road.

Beggar’s Night will take place rain or shine. Parents are encouraged to exercise good judgement in allowing children to participate.
