Families having Halloween fun tonight are being asked by police to consider their neighbours.
And Cheshire Police have pledged to get tough on those who step over the mark with anti-social behaviour.
Officers are encouraging victims of anti-social behaviour to pick up the phone and report it to the police, not just on Halloween but over the bonfire weekend.
Inspector Gareth Woods of the Communities Unit said: "Not everyone enjoys this time of year. Think about other people who live near you and be respectful of how your celebrations might impact on your neighbours."
Police say the most vulnerable people often dread this time of year especially if they are on their own as they can feel intimidated by trick or treaters and scared of people setting off fireworks near their homes.
Anti-social behaviour is also more prevalent during Halloween and bonfire celebrations and Cheshire officers will be taking robust action to crack down on reported incidents of anti-social behaviour.
