The curfew does not apply where juveniles are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. An exception is also made for juveniles attending church, school or employment activities.
The Court has no authority to set Beggars’ Night activities but does suggest that county cities, villages and organizations hold their trick-or-treat activities on the last Thursday in October from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The last Thursday of October for this year falls on October 28th.
