Press Release:

The Batavia Muckdogs are excited to announce their 3rd annual Muckdogs Trick or Treat at Dwyer Stadium on Saturday, October 21 from 3 - 6 p.m. 

“This tradition started when we took over the team in 2021 as a free event for the community to get together and have some fun around Halloween. Last year we saw over 5,000 people attend the event and we are expecting another great crowd. We really can’t thank the businesses that are involved who help make this event possible.” Owner Robbie Nichols.

The event is free to enter and is for all ages. Attendees can trick or treat, participate in games & activities, and enjoy the Halloween festivities at Dwyer Stadium. If you or someone you know wants their local business to be involved please email Muckdogs General Manager, Marc Witt

Halloween in the city is 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, be smart, be safe

By Billie Owens

Press release from the City of Batavia Police Department:

The City of Batavia will observe Halloween activities from 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31st, only. Below are some safety tips for the big night.
Have a safe and happy Halloween!

  • If you plan on going door to door, make sure you are properly supervised by a parent or responsible adult;
  • Do not go to homes where the porch lights are off;
  • Use a flashlight to let drivers see you, and see where you are going;
  • To avoid tripping or injury don't wear costumes that are loose fitting and too long;
  • Don't wear masks that obscure your vision; makeup is a good alternative to masks;
  • Wear reflective, bright colors to be seen by drivers after dark;
  • Walk on the sidewalks, or as near to the curb as possible if there are no sidewalks;
  • Observe safety rules when crossing or walking on the streets, and stay clear of traffic;
  • Parents should inspect any treats before you eat them!
  • The Batavia Police Department highly recommends as an alternative to going door to door, attending one of the Halloween events sponsored by local businesses;
  • Choose costumes that are marked flame retardant;
  • Make props such as magic wands and swords out of cardboard, rather than metal or wood;
  • Give and accept wrapped or packed candy only;
  • Go out in daylight and carry a flashlight in case of delay;
  • Have children stay within their neighborhood; only visit homes you know;
  • All trick or treating shall be completed by 9 p.m.
