Trick or Treat | 5:00 PM
TRICK OR TREAT UPDATE AND ADJUSTED HOURS
Trick or Treat is scheduled for Friday October 30th from 5pm to 8pm. (Rain date October 31st)
The extra hour is being offered to encourage social distancing and to provide more daylight for trick or treaters to safely participate. South Whitehall Township would like to encourage all residents to be mindful of current CDC guidelines. When Trick or Treating, please maintain the suggested 6ft social distancing standard. Please note, your typical Halloween mask does not suffice as a facial covering and we ask that you wear an appropriate mask that covers your nose and mouth. In addition, the township would like to offer the following suggestions:
1. If you wish to participate, consider placing candy outside in a small bowl so trick or treaters can pick their own. If you wish to sit outside with your candy, please maintain the 6-foot social distancing standard.
2. If you do not want to participate than simply leave your porch light off.
3. Please only offer pre-wrapped candy.
Please also note: If you would like to enjoy trick or treat this year but would rather not visit dozens of houses, South Whitehall Township will be offering up a spooky alternative for all the area’s kids! On October 30th from 5:00pm – 8:00pm, township staff will be offering a ‘one stop shop’ for trick or treaters at Covered Bridge Park. All who show up will walk down our (kid-friendly) haunted trail to pavilion #2 where they will be given a goody bag full of sweets and treats. Ghosts, goblins, spooky music, and more await! Get dressed up! We want to see all the scary ghosts, pretty princesses, strong firemen, and powerful superheroes that live in South Whitehall at this year’s trick or treat event. All staff who will be handing out candy will be wearing the proper personal protective equipment (PPE), practicing social distancing and will be following all current Covid-19 guidelines.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
