In order to help designate which homes are participating in trick-or- treating, the village has designed signs that can be displayed outside of homes. “Yes” and “No” door signs can be downloaded and printed from the village website.

A posted green sign in addition to an outside light left on will let trick-or-treaters know that they are welcome. A posted red sign in addition to no outside lights on will let trick-or-treaters know that they are not welcome.
