Hollidaysburg plans Halloween traditions
Hollidaysburg residents will still be able to enjoy Halloween traditions this year.
Trick or treat night will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, according to borough officials.
Chief Rodney Estep of the Hollidaysburg Police Department reminded community members that it gets dark during that time and asked parents to go trick or treating with children not old enough to go alone. He also suggested people carry a flashlight, go in groups and take an extra step to look across roadways.
“The police department will be out in full force,” he said.
The Halloween Parade will take place at 6 p.m. Saturday. The Phoenix Volunteer Fire Department in Hollidaysburg has hosted the annual event for 84 years.
Parade participants are to line up at 4 p.m. on Union Street next to Tiger Stadium. The parade route will follow North Montgomery Street, then Garber Street, to North Juniata Street, to Allegheny Street, to Union Street and then to Mulberry Street to disband, according to the department’s Facebook page.
The department says there will be no events at the station after the parade.
