PCA Halloween Signs

By popular demand, the Parkside Community Association has once again made signs available that publicize the Halloween Trick-or-Treating cut off policy agreed upon by the vast majority of residents for Halloween night.  Since the institution of the cut off policy, incidents of mischief and vandalism have been all but been eliminated. Here's a summary of what has been agreed upon by your Parkside neighbors.




  1. Halloween is for children. To minimize the security risk that occur when older kids go door to door until late at night, a cut off time of 8:00 pm has been established for trick-or-treating
  2. Don't turn off your lights and pretend you're not at home. This is an open invitation to vandalism and mischief. Instead keep your house well lit and post signs that you are out of candy.
  3. A positive publicity campaign is the key to a safe, fun Halloween for us all. We have make available three diffefrent signs. Please post to appropriate one on your porch or door on Halloween.
