    This is a great resource. But why does the county not designate, or at least recommended time for Trick or Treat time. Every year we go through the chaos of Trick or Treaters beginning nearly an hour before dark until nearly 10PM. People new to the county spend countless hours looking for information that does not exist. Why, because MOST communities have a designated time

    (Don’t believe me? Try googling “Trick or Treat hours Fairfax county.”) All you will get is conflicting opinions on blog pages, no announcements. In fact, if you go to your Halloween page, no where does it mention recommended hours, nor does it mention that there are no designated hours. Frustrating.
