During the Council Meeting of Monday, October 5th, Mayor John Hollenbach made the proclamation below in regards to Halloween. Although the Borough does not organize Halloween, families have always participated to the extent that they feel comfortable and this year is no different. If those who would like to participate can do so in a safe manner then neighbors should expect trick or treaters from approximately 6:00 – 9:00 pm on Halloween. This is a suggested time in order to give your neighbors, motorists, and police an idea of when to expect extra pedestrians and visitors at the door. Again, participation and organization is up to each individual family. Those who wish to participate are encouraged to use their porch/outside lights as a signifier to let trick or treaters know you want people knocking on your door. Those homes that do not wish to have visitors should turn their porch/outside lights off.
The County has also offered additional suggestions to help keep trick or treating safe for the community this year. Their guidance is available on the Bucks County Health Department Facebook page here: https://bit.ly/33yJQFJ
