Trick or Treat Night

Announcement from the Lancaster Township Board of Supervisors

For the safety of those participating in Trick or Treat Night, Lancaster Township will continue to follow the Lancaster Inter-Municipal Commission’s stated policy specifying that Trick or Treat night will be held on Friday, October 30th from 6pm – 8pm.

Participation in Trick or Treat is voluntary, and as such, participants should make decisions based on their personal comfort level after considering all factors.  We’d ask social distancing and mask protocols be observed, and that everyone be respectful to homes and residents who may be at higher risk.
