Since Halloween falls on a Sunday this year, trick-or-treat will start a little earlier this year.

Halloween is such a fun holiday. Families walk around the neighborhood with their little dinosaurs and princesses hoping to get a lot of candy.

This year, Halloween falls on a weekend so that means the trick-or-treaters will start earlier in the day. I like when Halloween falls on the weekend, trick-or-treating can be an all-day thing, even more fun for the kids.

Trick-or-Treat Town Times for Halloween Sunday, October 31st, 2021

Toms River and S. Toms River - 1 pm - 8 pm

Bayville - 2 pm - 8 pm

Beachwood - 1 pm - 8 pm

Several towns in Ocean County do not have a predetermined time for trick-or-treating. It's up to the parents to make the decision. If your town is not on the list, there is not a specific time for trick-or-treating.

This year is a little different for Toms River and surrounding towns. Usually, trick-or-treat is October 30th, the day before Halloween, because of the Toms River Halloween Parade. Not this year, Halloween falls on a Sunday, so the parade is Saturday, October 30th.

The top 5 Halloween costumes that you might see at your door this year for 2021 are a dinosaur, Spider-Man, Cruella de Vil, and a Fairy. I love the little kids that come to the door with their big pumpkins, their eyes really big, waiting for the candy and their smiles.

Happy Halloween and stay safe on Halloween night, there will be lots of people out and about.
