HARRISBURG – Mayor Papenfuse has announced “Grab & Go Treat Night” in celebration of Halloween in the City of Harrisburg.  

City officials will be giving candy to the little ghouls and goblins while adhering to social distancing and other precautions. The City will not be holding a traditional trick-or-treat night this year, as the CDC has designated trick-or-treating as a ‘high risk’ activity. More information on this is available at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html#halloween 

“We hope that this is a fun alternative for children throughout Harrisburg,” said Mayor Eric Papenfuse. “It is important for us to follow health guidelines for the safety of residents.”
