PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Oct. 30, 2009) — Area cities and Fort Leonard Wood officials have announced the designated Halloween hours for trick-or-treating this Saturday.

“We ask that everyone be aware of the ghosts, goblins, ballerinas and superheroes that will be out and about,” Waynesville city officials said in a prepared statement. “We hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween and that there are more treats than tricks.”

Waynesville’s hours for public trick-or-treating are 5 to 8 p.m.; the same hours have been established by the city of Dixon.

Fort Leonard Wood and St. Robert costumed kids will start slightly later at 6 p.m. but also end at 8 p.m.

Richland’s designated hours also start at 6 p.m. and run until 9 p.m.

The longest trick-or-treat hours in Pulaski County are those in Crocker, where designated hours are 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Other Saturday night opportunities are offered by two local churches, Westside Baptist Church in Waynesville and Grace Covenant Church in Buckhorn, which offer alternative celebrations that don’t involve scary costumes and don’t have children walking the streets at night.

On the other end of the scale, members of Fort Leonard Wood’s Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers program are putting on a haunted house which young children are discouraged from attending on the grounds that BOSS members are “actively trying to scare soldiers.” A less-aggressive haunted village is also being sponsored in Buckhorn by the Shine Club and Freedom of the Road Riders organizations.
