There are some new rules for trick-or-treaters in one Pennsylvania borough.

MyFoxPhilly reported that children in North York are required to wear wristbands while trick-or-treating.

Children who don’t live in the borough won’t be able to get a wristband, so they can’t collect candy there.

The idea came about after the borough experienced chaos last Halloween.

Residents said they saw more trick-or-treaters than ever before.

The idea is to give homeowners an option: if the child doesn’t have a band, they don’t get candy.

In Hampton Roads, the rules are as follows:

Kids can’t trick or treat unless they’re 12 or younger.

• Virginia Beach: Dusk to 8 p.m.

• Chesapeake: 5 to 8 p.m.

• Norfolk and Suffolk: Ends at 8 p.m.

• Portsmouth: 6 to 8 p.m.
