Happy Halloween! Trick-or-Treat Sat. 10/31 @5:30 - 7:30 p.m.

Dear Neighbors,

For many, Halloween is a festive night celebrated by both children and adults alike. Halloween is also the night when the time honored tradition of trick-or-treating takes place.

This year the City of Pittsburgh’s official trick-or-treating hours are from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 31, 2015. 

In addition to trick-or-treating, many community groups and churches throughout the City host Halloween parties, parades and other events as alternatives to trick-or-treating. To connect interested residents with neighborhood events,  SaferTogether Pittsburgh, an initiative of the Department of Public Safety, has created an easy, user-friendly way for community and church groups to register their Halloween festivities online.

For more information  please contact Liz Style at 412-255-8977 or or John Tokarski at 412-255-2117 or
