Share post:

BOURBONNAIS – Tuesday night, the Village of Herscher announced Halloween will go forward with normal hours next month.  The Village Board did not cite specific hours to be published until safety precautions could be addressed at an upcoming meeting.

Herscher’s announcement came less than 24 hours after the Village of Bourbonnais said they would be waiting for guidance from the Public Health Department and Governor’s office before announcing local trick-or-treating hours in town.

 “We’ll announce details as soon as they’re available,” Mayor Paul Schore said during Monday’s village board meeting.  “This does include Halloween and Trick-or-Treating.  We’ll work with them and the adjoining communities to try and put some type of trick-or-treating together, but we’re waiting on the medical people to comment on that.”

The Village had already published an October PDF that lists trick-or-treating hours in Bourbonnais running from 5 pm to 7 pm on October 31st prior to the start of Monday night’s meeting.

During the 1918 pandemic, most cities placed a ban on Halloween gatherings as cases grew leading into Winter.
