Mayor Declares Trick or Treat Night

Do you find it helpful to have an "official time" declaration?

It's official, Halloween is officially "Trick or Treat Night" in the Borough of Phoenixville.

During his Mayor's report at Tuesday's Borough Council meeting Phoenixville Mayor Leo Scoda announced that he will declare Thursday October 31 from 6-8 p.m. as Trick or Treat Night in the Borough.

What time do your kids go trick or treating and is it helpful to have an "official" trick or treat time "declared" by the mayor?

Yes, I like having specified Trick or Treat hours.

I'm glad the mayor has the time to declare "trick or treat" night instead of answering emails or helping young students get their own bus to school so they can be safe. Lame

From 6-8pm I give out candy, from 9-10 I give carrots & broccoli. If you ring my bell after 10pm you get chocolate covered cat turds.

Definitely helpful. It's much better when everyone is on the same page. It should be posted on the borough website too.

Silly way for the Mayor to spend his time but then again, when is the last time this old man did anything of note? He is a nice guy but we'll all be better off when he is gone and some young blood (hopefully not another Phoenixville lifer) takes over.

i have to call someone to participate ?

Thaizzi, no you don't have to call anyone to participate. You just walk around in the town, door to door, knocking and seeing if they are giving candy. Most houses in town participate. If their porch/inside lights are off, they most likely are Not giving candy. Have fun!
