Twin Cities Trick-Or-Treat Times

Looking for Twin Cities Trick or Treat Times? We don’t have official times here.

  • Trick-or-treating happens on Halloween, regardless of the day of the week on which it falls.
  • Participating houses turn on their porch light or decorate.
  • There is no trick-or-treat start time and no trick-or-treat cut time.
  • Kids usually start around dusk or when they get home from school and some go until curfew. Find curfew times for your city here.

In 2021, Halloween falls on a Sunday, so if you want to get an early start, just look for houses with lights on.

The Halloween Blizzard of 1991

New to the Twin Cities? Get ready! Anyone who is old enough to remember the epic Halloween Blizzard of 1991 will want to reminisce. You can be ready to contribute by reading this MNOpedia article or just let your friends regale your with their stories. 

Hey! our kids are going to have their own special stories from last year.
