Recently the Dauphin County Chiefs of Police decided they would no longer set a county-wide date for Trick-or-Treat. Hummelstown Borough will not cancel nor set a date for Trick-or-Treat in 2020.
That being said, Hummelstown is known for being a close-knit community. If neighborhoods within the community, individual street blocks, or groups of families wish to hold a Trick-or-Treat event, the Borough will not interfere. Each neighborhood or group can decide whether or not they wish to participate in the version of Trick or Treat they design. Groups who decide to Trick-or-Treat should reference the CDC's website under "Holiday Celebrations" for guidelines. ... See moreSee less
Did you forget or not even know the Sheriff's Department and the various Chiefs of Police collaborated a long time ago to create one night for all communities to celebrate Trick or Treat to ensure the safety of the youngsters and secondarily discourage one locale being overrun with youngsters from other communities that had scheduled their TnT on a different night?
This year is going to be a mess if there are several nights scheduled.
TnT has, for a long time, been scheduled on the last Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m.
Suggest to leave it alone.
IF you want to, consider making the event 2 to 4 p.m. on the LAST Saturday of October every year. Yes, it's daylight. Makes it easier to see the costumed spooks, goblins and especially Darth Vader and other dark costumes.
Something to think about for next year, Saturday, October 30th.
