Trick-Or-Treat Times for Southern West Virginia

Updated Oct 20, 2017

The usefulness of this post will depend entirely on what side of the Halloween equation you’re on.

If you like all the stuff about our spookiest holiday, then you’ll probably want to know what times the kids will be trick-or-treating around the state.  Whether you take the kids out from house to house, pass out the candy from your own home, or hide under a pile of leaves waiting to scare some teenagers, you’ll want to schedule it.

If not, you’ll at least know when not to be home
