JBER has released the 2018 designated trick or treat hours. During this time, Security Forces will operate their pumpkin patrol to help ensure a safe Halloween for all residents.

Date: 31 October 2018

Time: 6 PM to 8 PM

Location: All Aurora Housing Neighborhoods


By the time Halloween rolls around, winter is usually in full swing in Alaska. To stay safe this Halloween be sure to:

  1. Bundle Up! Wear weather appropriate attire. It will be cold and snow/ice is always a possibility.
  2. Drive Cautiously. Take it slow through the neighborhoods and be aware of your surroundings. Security Forces has a zero tolerance policy for reckless, distracted, or drunk driving.
  3. Be Visible. Wear bright colors and carry flashlights.
  4. Keep the Wildlife at Bay. Many Alaskans use fake pumpkins, as moose are attracted to real ones. If you do put a real pumpkin out, it is only permitted during trick or treat hours.
  5. Parental Supervision. As always, parents should be a part of the trick or treat experience.
  6. Safe Candy Handout. Only hand out wrapped candy. Parents should always inspect candy prior to letting children consume any.
  7. Clear driveways and sidewalks of snow and ice. Should it snow, ensure your driveway is cleared. More information on snow removal responsibilities can be found in our handbook.
