Last year the Bathurst Mayor and council came under extreme media attention for changing the bylaw in regards to the age and curfew for trick-or-treating on Halloween.
The bylaw was changed in 2016 to implement teens over the age of 14 not allowed to go door to door for trick-or-treating. It also cut the curfew to 7pm AST.
Currently, they are updating the bylaw to switch the crewfew to 8pm AST and changing the age limit to 16 years of age. The offical change is not projected to be implemented until October.
What happens if you are found breaking the bylaw?
If caught out after 8PM AST while having a mask disguise on or trick-or-treating over the age of sixteen you could inccur a $200 fine!
Some citizens are still not happy with the updates and think there should be no rules when it comes to Halloween.
What are your thoughts?
