All area communities have set trick-or-treating hours for Tuesday evening except the town of Delavan, where trick-or-treating will be noon to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Those who want a visit from trick-or-treaters should turn on their porch lights. Trick-or-treaters should go only to homes that are well lit with a porch light on, according to a Janesville Police Department news release.

The department shared other Halloween safety tips:

-- Wear a light-colored costume so you're easily seen in the dark. Wear reflective tape and carry a flashlight for more visibility.

-- Make sure your costume won't trip you or obstruct your vision. Wearing face paint instead of a mask makes it easier to see.

-- Go with your parents, an older family member or a group of friends. Trick or treat in your own neighborhood on well-lit streets.

-- Walk on sidewalks when possible. Be careful when crossing the street, and cross only at street corners.

-- Wait until you're home to eat treats. Don't eat anything that's not wrapped.

-- Contact the police if you see anything suspicious.
