Halloween & Trick-or-Treating in Waterford

Happy Halloween from all of us here at Waterford Township! We wish you a safe and healthy Halloween. Suggested trick-or-treat hours for Halloween on Monday, October 31, 2022, in Waterford are 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Some neighborhoods choose to extend that time by leaving porch lights on as an indication they are distributing treats.
 
Here are a few tips to help our community stay safe this Halloween:  
Motorists - please exercise extra caution this evening. Obey posted speed limits, avoid distractions while driving, and watch for pedestrian traffic. Allow extra travel time as rush-hour traffic is usually heavier on Halloween.
Trick-or-Treaters - please look both ways before entering a roadway, utilize reflective items on dark clothing and carry a flashlight, and go out in groups and/or with an adult chaperone.   

The Waterford Police Dept. will scan candy until 8:30 pm at the Waterford Police Station, 5150 Civic Center Drive, Waterford, Michigan 48329.
