For many, Halloween is a festive night celebrated by both children and adults. 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 Monday, October 31, 2016.
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, the Department of Public Safety, SaferTogether initiative has created an easy, user-friendly way for community and church groups to register their Halloween festivities online.
