PITTSBURGH: Sets Halloween Trick-Or-Treat Times


The number of popular events postponed in Pittsburgh this year due to the coronavirus outbreak are too numerous to note. But Halloween trick-or-treating won't be one of them

The city announced Monday that the official trick-or-treat times will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday Oct. 31. But city officials urged people to adhere to the following guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Trick-or-treat only with family members
  • Wear cloth facemasks as well as Halloween masks
  • Carry hand sanitizer
  • Distribute candy by leaving it outside, and not have in-person and face-to-face interactions at the door
  • Follow social distancing on sidewalks, and when approaching homes where others are getting candy
  • Not attend indoor costume parties

As always, motorists are asked to be especially vigilant on Halloween night, decrease speeds and increase awareness of trick-or-treating children and families.
