FWPD said this year's Halloween hours will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Halloween trick or treat times
It’s a little earlier than before when it was 6-8 p.m.
"Time and daylight is a little less during that period. We don't want to wait too late in the evening where it's really really dark. We set it at 5:30-7:30. We're hoping that it proceeds as normal for the kids. It usually is a bad horrible day weather wise and it always has been in the past," Sgt. Sofia Rosales-Scatena said.
Fort Wayne Police Chief Steve Reed and the Allen County Health Department are working together to create a plan to keep everyone safe during the pandemic.
The official health plan has not been released yet.
Malinda Harris and her son Shane Harris are looking forward to it.
"There's definitely going to be a mask, so the costume most likely won't have a full mask, or there will be a mask that's incorporated into it somehow," she explained.
Jennifer Mata said she's still thinking about if she and her family will participate this year.
"It's kind of like everything is up in the air. I would say the plan is to probably do something small with family," Mata said.
Even though there may be fewer people out this year, Harris said she expects people out after the curfew.
"I'm not worried about my children being out pass that time, but since it's a Friday-Saturday night, I think that there will be stragglers and a lot of people that aren't going to abide by the curfew, but that happens every year," she said.
