Batten down the hatches and light your torches, it’s almost Halloween. The candy gobbling hordes will hit the streets this weekend so stock up on candy and be prepared for the pending onslaught at your door. However, depending on where you live, you may need to break out the bite-sized candies on October 30th instead of the 31st. This year Halloween falls on a Sunday which has thrown a kink into celebrations and has led many jurisdictions to schedule “Official Trick or Treating” on Saturday October 30th. A few however, will still be observing the holiday on the actual date.
To stem the confusion we have amassed a list of local jurisdictions who provide official hours for Trick or Treating. We will add more as they become available.
