What’s the most popular question in Derry Township when fall is right around the corner? “When is Trick or Treat Night?” Residents in Derry Township take this October evening of costumes and treats very seriously. This year’s Trick or Treat will be held on Thursday, October 26 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The Dauphin County Chiefs of Police Association selects the date and recommends that all municipalities in Dauphin County have Trick or Treat on the same night, on a weekday night (the Thursday before Halloween), so that it is only held on one night and everyone is aware of it for the safety of the children.
