When it comes to trick or treat times – many communities in the Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg area do not have official listed hours. There is no hard-and-fast schedule for trick or treating – which means families need to use their best judgment. Halloween this year is on Monday, October 31. Trick or treat times will vary by location and we recommend that you check your local listings prior to your candy-fueled adventure – but a general rule of thumb is an hour before dusk to two hours after. This puts general trick or treat hours from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. for many families.
