Swatara Twp. Trick or Treat Thursday Oct. 30th from 6:00 p.m. til 8 p.m.

Area Trick-or-Treat Schedule and Safety Tips Offered

 

Halloween is just around the corner and with it comes one of the most anticipated nights of the year for children.

Derry, Lower Swatara, Swatara and Conewago townships and Hummelstown, Middletown and Royalton boroughs will hold trick-or-treat this year on Thursday, Oct. 30. Middletown Borough’s trick-or-treat will take place from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and all other municipalities will take place from 6-8 p.m.

I would like to remind parents and children to follow these safety tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help make Halloween festivities fun and safe for everyone:

 • Swords, knives and similar costume accessories should be short, soft and flexible.
 • Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.
 • Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.
 • Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.
 • Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. Always walk and don’t run from house to house.
 • Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Never accept rides from strangers.
 • Wear well-fitting masks, costumes and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips and falls.
