Millcreek Township Welcomes Official Trick-or-Treat Hours With Safety Tips 

For Immediate Release: October 10, 2023

MILLCREEK, PA – Millcreek Township Trick or Treat will take place on Halloween, Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2023, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. Halloween is a large gathering of the community and fits Millcreek’s vision to cultivate a growing and inspired community of neighbors. With this much activity in one evening residents must remember safety and the official hours. 

“We urge families to have fun, be safe and remain vigilant of their surroundings“, said MPD Chief Carter Mook. 

Millcreek police and other first responders will be out patrolling and passing out candy. 

For children to best remain safe, dress them in reflective or brightly colored clothing, remove any tripping hazards from costumes, avoid sharp costume accessories and always walk with younger children.

Have a conversation with children about walking safely, in groups, staying in well-lit areas, avoiding distractions, not assuming cars will stop and using crosswalks. Review the trick-or-treating route and always have an emergency contact plan. Dial 9-1-1 in any emergency. 

Prepare homes for trick-or-treaters by clearing entryways of debris and making sure they are well-lit. Secure any pets to ensure sure they do not get out.
