Chambersburg Borough announces “suggested” trick-or-treating times

06 October 2023- In the Borough of Chambersburg, it is suggested by the borough that families trick-or-treat each year on October 31, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., in order to give your friends, neighbors, motorists, and police an idea of when to expect extra pedestrians and visitors at their door. Participation and scheduling is entirely up to each family.

Since trick-or-treating is not an event that is officially scheduled by the Borough, the Borough would not reschedule or suggest a “rain date” in the event of inclement weather. Moreover, it is perfectly acceptable for folks to opt out and not participate.

If you have any questions, please contact Jamia Wright, Borough Secretary, at
