Trick or Treat Law

posted by Josh Busch - 

Kids LOVE Halloween and trick-or-treat season!  I mean, who doesn't?  One of the biggest questions is what age is the cut off to when you should be allowed to participate in trick-or-treat?

Well, I can tell you that it is very clear that 12 years old is that age in Chesapeak, VA.


They actually have an ordinance written in the books that states:

"If any person over the age of 12 years shall engage in the activity commonly known as "trick or treat" or any other activity of similar character or nature under any name whatsoever, he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $25.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than six months or both."


How old is too old?? Make sure you take our Twitter poll below.

Plus... in case you missed in the ordinance, they also have a very strict time restriction for trick-or-treat:

"If any person shall engage in the activity commonly known as "trick or treat" or any other activity of similar character or nature under any name whatsoever after 8:00 p.m., he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $10.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than 30 days or both."
