The ghouls and goblins are about to hit the streets for some trick-or-treating. But do you know your area's rules for trick-or-treating, or does your area even have rules and guidelines for trick-or-treating?

Because of safety concerns, many cities nationwide have set times for trick-or-treating. This is done so that kids are less likely to be trick or treating while adults are starting their own parties and may not be looking for children on the road.

Seattle has deemed 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. as trick-or-treating hours. Las Vegas and San Francisco end trick or treating at 9 p.m.

After calling all the local police departments, we found that the Treasure Valley doesn't have set times for trick-or-treating. While Boise said that trick-or-treating should be wrapped up by 11 p.m. That seems a little late for a weeknight.

If we went by the hours that Harrison Boulevard is closed between Hill and Resseguie, we would be talking about 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. I've never done trick or treating that early, but there will most certainly be kids out on Harrison if it is closed to traffic.

If you are a parent trying to decide when the best time for trick or treating is, my experience is that Boise is an early town. Most of the time, trick or treating is wrapped up by 8. If you are someone who is handing out candy and you want to close up shop for the night, just turn off your porch light.
