With Halloween right around the corner, the question always arises - how old is too old to trick or treat? I'm not even going to tell you my opinion on this matter, because somebody will probably freak out. But, the city of Chesapeake, Virginia has no problem saying you could go to jail if you are trick or treating over the age of 12. Really.

Their city code ordinance states:

If any person over the age of 12 years shall engage in the activity commonly known as "trick or treat" or any other activity of similar character or nature under any name whatsoever, he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $25.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than six months or both.

If any person shall engage in the activity commonly known as "trick or treat" or any other activity of similar character or nature under any name whatsoever after 8:00 p.m., he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $10.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than 30 days or both.

(Code 1970, § 17-13.1; Ord. of 10-26-70)

They also have strict rules for Halloween trick or treat times - with a city code saying any person trick-or-treating after 8 p.m. will be guilty of a misdemeanor and punished by up to a $100.00 fine or jail time of up to 30 days, or both.

This looks like all tricks and no treats to me!
