October 31 falls on a Monday this year, which happens to also be a teacher workday for most Charlotte-area schools.
That means trick-or-treaters have all day to celebrate but no one wants their kids out late on a school night.
Looking for the best trick-or-treat neighborhoods, hours and Halloween events?– We have you covered.
Most holiday events were held over the weekend however there are still a few activities happening at shopping centers, churches, and more, that include trick or treat or trunk or treat.
When Does Treat-Or-Treat Start?
4 PM to 6 PM
Many neighborhoods in Charlotte hold trick-or-treating before dusk and end just before dark. Also looks like we can expect a small chance of rain. Check the weather before you head out.
