Let’s start in Chesapeake, Virginia where anyone over the age of 13 who is caught trick-or-treating can be sent to jail for up to 6 months, and fined!
In Newport News, Virginia, kids can trick or treat until 7th grade or until they turn 12. After that, it’s a misdemeanor.
Several North Carolina cities have similar legal restrictions for 12 or 13 year olds, as well as 9 p.m. curfews for all.

What does that have to do with Halloween?
— and the reason is?
When I was 16 our choir would go trick or treating for UNICEF.
This goes along with the practice of some leftist cities that fined homeowners for hosting Bible study meetings in their homes or shutting down children’s lemonade stands.
There you go again, government trying to micromanage people’s lives. I don’t know the politics of this area but my bet is this is a DemoRat inspired idea…they just love making people conform to their IDEOLOGY…forget FREEDOM….COMRADES!
Oh, they would rather they were out drinking or destroying property perhaps!
