Trick or Treating & Halloween Tips


Gloucester Township will be celebrating Halloween on Sunday October 31, 2010. There is no specific start time but all Halloween activities must end by 7:00 PM. Curfew will also be at 7:00 PM on Friday October 29, 2010 and Saturday October 30, 2010. Anyone under the age of age 18 without adult supervision must follow these times.

Parents should check and carefully scrutinize all “treats” received by the children for tampering with the packaging or containers or possible adulterations and to discard any such “treats” which may be suspect of harm or illness. If you suspect any tampering with the “treats” you should contact the Gloucester Township Police Department at 856-228-4500.

Remember to use caution while crossing roadways and walk on the sidewalks where they are available. Trick or treat in areas that you are accustomed with and accompany your children as they participate in the Halloween activities.

Make sure the children are wearing reflective clothing so they could be seen while crossing roadways and intersections. If available have some sort of hand light or flashlight to also aid with the children being seen.

If you have any questions or concerns about Halloween, please contact the Community Relations Bureau at 856-374-3513.
