Whenever Oct. 31 falls on a Sunday, we get lots of calls and emails asking if people where they live will be Halloween trick-or-treating that day or Saturday.

This year, we reached out to 77 North Alabama cities and towns to see what they are telling their citizens: Saturday? Sunday? Whenever you want? BOTH?

Below is what we learned. If you’re a city/town on the list with “No Response” and want us to update the list, email us at (And if you’re a city/town we overlooked, email us about that, too!)
