Whether you are looking for haunted houses to visit or just places to trick-or-treat, Springfield has it all.

Plenty to See and Do During Halloween in Springfield, Illinois

While Springfield is generally known as a tourist attraction, people find haunted houses and places to trick-or-treat during the month of October. The State Journal-Register newspaper in Springfield listed last year several haunted houses and other attractions in the Springfield area for people to check out during October.

Most of the trick-or-treating in and around Springfield was set to take place on Sunday, October 30 from 5-8 p.m. With all of these trick-or-treating activities taking place, children safety is the biggest concern, especially in a big city like Springfield.

Focusing on a child’s safety during Halloween is very important. Wearing light clothing with reflective tape is very important, along with keeping track of where children are at all times. One web site talks about children safety and ways parents and children can prevent getting into an accident. Stopping at places that families know is also very important to avoid getting bad candy or encountering strangers.

Remember safety first when trick-or-treating in and around Springfield. There are a lot of the tourist locations open for trick-or-treating, and you can usually trust those sites better than walking from home to home. Parents still need to be careful and sort through all of the candy that their children receive for Halloween to approve that it is safe before eating.

Make it a great Halloween everyone, and enjoy trick-or-treating and the haunted houses!
