Peters township DOES have trick or treat nights. Fort loudon has one every year, as well as a halloween party/costume contest at the community center. Granted its not a big one, its fun for the kids and they get free cupcakes. Maybe public opinion ought to correct that? Then again its hard for me to imagine public opinion getting anything right...
Do we know yet when this is yet?

I wish they would just pick Halloween, but for 35 years plus, Waynesboro has always had thier trick or treat on the Tursday before Halloween. I guess since Halloween is on Saturday, they are reconsidering it.

Why is Trick or Treat "scheduled"? Where I grew up, you went trick or treating on Halloween. End of story. No other day of the year, no times scheduled. Halloween is Oct. 31, why go trick or treating any other night?
Good question, Halloween Night is the only T or T Nite!

I moved here 10 yrs ago, & I'm still trying to adjust to the strange "ways". I guess it gives a person more opportunities for free candy.

In Ocean County NJ, they usually have a big Halloween Parade in Toms River (the county seat) on Halloween night which a lot of folks like to attend so they sometimes say that trick or treating will be the night before so nobody misses out on either event.

I hear ya. The Thursday thing is bizarre. Up in the Harrisburg area, they held ToT on Thursday again this year, despite Halloween falling on a Saturday.

I'm also still trying to get used to the food, decorations and colloquialisms (wtf does "red up" your room MEAN??)

Greene Township is holding trick or treat night Monday, October 31 - like it should be.

I'll be handing out mini-bottles of booze in protest of the township's dry status. Besides, a little nip of Jack Daniels or Captain Morgan is probably better for the kiddos than candy corn and those awful circus peanut things.

Ugh, circus peanuts are awful. I'd take a nice mix drink over that sugar filled junk anyway. Halloween is all about drinking for the adults and candy hunting for the kids.
