CLEARFIELD – After a few weeks of discussion, children in Lawrence Township and Clearfield Borough will share the same trick-or-treat night.
Both municipalities considered Saturday afternoon as a possible time. Supervisor Glenn Johnston stated safety concerns for children trick-or-treating at night.
However, last week Clearfield Borough Council set trick-or-treat night in the borough for Oct. 28 from 6-8 p.m. On Tuesday night, the Lawrence Township Supervisors followed suit. One of the reasons the municipalities decided to go with the same date was so children would stick within their own neighborhoods. Members of council had noted at past meetings that having trick-or-treat at night lends to the ambiance of the event.
