West Chester Trick-or-Treat

Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat will be held in the Borough of West Chester between the hours of 6pm and 8pm on Monday, October 31, 2016.

Please follow these safety tips:

  • Young children should always go trick-or-treating with an adult
  • Never trick-or-treat alone. Have at least 2 buddies go with you
  • Plan your entire route and make sure your family knows what it is
  • Make sure that you are wearing a flame retardant costume
  • Wear brightly colored clothing
  • Wait until you get home and your parents check your candy before you eat ANY of it
  • Be very cautious of strangers
  • Accept treats only in the doorway. Never go inside a stranger's house
  • Be sure to say thank you for your treats
  • Don't play near jack-o-lanterns
  • Visit only houses where the lights are on
  • Walk, do not run
  • Stay on sidewalks and driveways
  • Cross the street at the corner or in a crosswalk only
  • Carry a cell phone with you if possible
  • Wear a watch and keep track of time
  • Carry a flashlight
  • Make this (and every) Halloween a safe and happy one!
