OKLAHOMA CITY – Halloween is at the end of the week and it’s a night kids wait all year long for. But with some communities changing their trick-or-treat nights, you may be confused about your city.

Here's what you need to know before taking your little ghosts and goblins trick-or-treating.

At Party Galaxy, shoppers like April Campbell are on a deadline. They've got just a few days left to get the finishing touches on their costumes.

“My husband and I are going to be Woody and Jessie from ‘Toy Story.’ We're doing a couple of parties through the week. We're not actually doing any trick-or-treating, just parties,” said April Campbell.

Campbell may not be trick-or-treating, but thousands of children will be, the question is when?

“We've had a few calls where people called and said ‘Well, Norman moved.’ We get those calls on occasion,” said Jerry Church with the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments.

Norman is trick-or-treating on Friday due to Saturday night's OU football game. Stillwater also has a home game and is trick-or-treating on Thursday. But that's unusual, most cities try to keep the night the same to avoid what used to happen.

“Conceivably you could go trick-or-treating in a town on a Thursday night, get your mom and dad to drive you the next night and Saturday night so it just became ridiculous,” Church said.

“We take ACOG’s recommendation and this year Saturday night is the perfect night to have Halloween, so that's what we're going to continue to do,” said Kristy Yager with the city of Oklahoma City.

Besides Oklahoma City, Edmond, Moore, Del City, Midwest City, Yukon, El Reno and Bethany are also trick-or-treating on Saturday night, a night guaranteed to be frightfully fun.

Folks in Norman should be prepared for a lot of trick-or-treaters because potentially kids could trick or treat two nights in a row.

If you're unsure of when your community is trick-or-treating, call your city hall.
