MORPC Sets Trick or Treat Dates for Central Ohio

MORPC has set the recommended “Trick-or-Treat” dates for Central Ohio communities for the next five years, which Mifflin Township follows. In a resolution approved by the Commission, the following formula determines the dates: if Halloween, October 31, falls on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, then Trick-or-Treat will be held the prior Thursday. If Halloween falls on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, then Trick-or-Treat will be held on that day.

Even though the Commission approved a unified date, Mifflin Township has the authority to change to or keep Trick-or-Treat on Oct. 31. In the event of inclement weather, Trick-or-Treat will remain on the unified date and parents will be encouraged to exercise judgment in allowing children to participate.

In keeping to this formula, the dates for Trick-or-Treat for 2014 - 2019 are as follows:

  • 2014 – Thursday, October 30
  • 2015 – Thursday, October 29
  • 2016 – Monday, October 31
  • 2017 – Tuesday, October 31
  • 2018 – Wednesday, October 31
  • 2019 – Thursday, October 31
