Wondering when to head out to trick-or-treat with your kids in Tucson, Marana, Oro Valley, Sahuarita, or Vail?
As far as we have observed, all communities around Tucson trick or treat on October 31, no matter which day of the week it falls on. For 2023, Halloween falls on a Tuesday.
Deputy Cody Gress of the Pima County Sheriff's Department confirmed that there "are no official start times for trick-or-treating in Pima County," but it is generally a good idea to conclude trick-or-treating by 7:30pm to respect early bedtimes.
Sunset on Tuesday, October 31, will be at 5:35pm so you should have time to trick-or-treat after dusk if that is your preference. A good rule of thumb would be to trick-or-treat between 5:00pm and 7:00pm. If a house has its front lights out, that almost always means that the residents are not home or not participating in trick-or-treating. Move on to the next lighted home.
