Tuesday marks Halloween and trick-or-treaters across Massachusetts will frolic through their neighborhoods in search of candy.
The final touches have been put on costumes and parents have stocked up on sweet treats in anticipation of the Halloween night.
Some towns and cities in the Bay State have announced pre-scheduled blocks of time for trick-or-treaters to celebrate Halloween.
Below is a town-by-town list of times with special trick-or-treating times:
- Andover: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. (Oct. 31)
- Amesbury: 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (Oct. 31)
- Dracut: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. (Oct. 31)
- Lee: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. (Oct 31)

Most towns and cities have not set a designated time for trick-or-treating, with business returning to usual on Oct. 31 following the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you live in a community without a designated time, surveys show that 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. is a respectable time frame for traveling door-to-door.
