Wichita KS | Halloween 2022 – Halloween is so close we can almost taste the candy! Here’s everything you need to know about trick-or-treating in Wichita, from when it starts to where it happens:
What time does trick-or-treating start in Wichita?
The City of Wichita has no official set time. Typically, you can expect trick-or-treaters to begin roaming the streets when the sun starts to set (especially families with little ones). Plan to hear your doorbell ring from 5pm-8pm, with a few stragglers before and after.
As a general rule, if your whole family is out enjoying the fun or if you won’t be participating in the festivities, just leave your porch light off so trick-or-treaters know to skip your house!
Do we only trick-or-treat on Halloween Day in Wichita?
This is a popular question that pops up when Halloween falls on a school night or on a Sunday. The city of Wichita does not change the date of trick-or-treating – it’s always on October 31st, rain or shine!
If there is inclement weather, some Halloween events have been known to move indoors – we will let you know if this happens!
Where are the best places to trick-or-treat in Wichita?
We always recommend sticking to the familiarity & safety of your own neighborhood! But if you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, the College Hill neighborhood always goes all out with fun spooky displays! These houses/neighborhoods also get into the spirit with their drive-by Halloween scenes.
What do we do with extra Halloween candy?
When you get home with all of that loot, parents should double-check to make sure nothing looks suspicious. Then you can feast while watching a fun family Halloween movie OR enjoy a few pieces and give the rest to the Switch Witch!
