I used to go to Dixie Park but it is way too crowded and dangerous for the kids, traffic is aweful. So now I take several kids to the Bratcher Lane area that dont have parents who can take them trick or treating. We park and slowly and safely walk thru the neighborhoods. There are several officers that live in that area and many other great folks too. Also, Berea Hospital will take an X-ray of your kids candy bag to make sure there are no sharp objects in them before eating that night.
Another news bulletin.....this morning on HLN they announced that most all costumes from China had 11 times higher lead amounts in the kids Halloween costumes and accessories. Children who put these items in there mouth may become very sick from lead poisoning. So be very mindful if your kids costumes or accessories are from China. Be safe and Happy Halloween!

I agree, Bratcher lane is one of the best places to go in Berea and safest. I went there as a kid and now that's where we all go. We've never had any issues with it being too crowded or giving out weird candy. Everyone there are really nice and get into the season! Happy Haunting!

Yes, the age limit is twelve for trick or treating.
It usually begins at 8 pm on Halloween night.
As for the indoor trick or treating they used to do that at the Richmond Mall and I think that some of the schools may do indoor as well when we have inclement weather but not sure if they still do but you can check it out.
The children get so excited and try to run from house to house and sometimes forget to watch out for traffic. That is why it is so good for extra family or friends to walk along with you and your kids. My children are already grown up but I still go along with my grandchild and several other kids to help watch out for them.
So please, be mindful and try to be extra cautious while driving during trick or treating times.
Happy Halloween everyone and please watch out for our little trick or treaters this year. Be safe!

I think its from 6p to 8p, not starting at 8p like the other poster suggested. The 2 hr time limit and age limit is stupid. Talk about taking away the fun.

Oops...you are correct! The time is 6pm till 8pm and the age limit is 12.

Trick or treat night needs to be postponed until Friday or Saturday due to inclement weather.
Its much too cold,nasty and rainy for our children to be out in this. The weather is supposed to be much better by then. Its not fair that the kids cannot go out trick or treating because their parents are worried about them getting sick.
Please City of Berea, postpone it till another night so our children do not get sick?
Other counties have done this, why hasn't Madison County?
Please, its for our children's sake?
Do any other parents have concerns?
I would prefer my kids not go at all but their kids and they really want to go trick or treating.
I told them I would buy them bags of candy but they still want to go door to door.
I guess I cannot blame them because I was a kid once too.

When we were kids we went out trick or treating ON Halloween in the snow sometimes. Your kids will survive. It is attitudes like yours that turn kids into the little entitled whiners people are always griping about.
