Trick or Treat is On for Manchester Township, Brick Township Mayors Announce

MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP, NJ – Trick or treat is on in Manchester Township according to Mayor Ken Palmer.  Palmer said today his office has been receiving inquiries about Halloween trick or treating from residents and said as long as Governor Phil Murphy doesn’t cancel the holiday at the state level, the show will go on in his town.

“We have been getting a number of inquiries about Halloween and Trick or Treating. We WILL permit Trick or Treating unless the State proscribes otherwise. Enjoy and stay safe,” Palmer said today.

Palmer’s decision comes days after Brick Township Mayor announced trick or treat and trunk or treat are on for the township this year despite COVID-19 and gave residents suggestions on how to safely participate in both.  On Halloween, Ducey encouraged residents to use their porch lights as a signifier to let trick or treaters know if you want people knocking on your door or not.  Ducey said homes that will be giving out candy should turn their lights on at around 2pm and those homes that do not wish to have visitors should turn their porch lights off for the night.

“People might not want anyone knocking in this time we live in, for covid-19 or whatever,” Ducey said.   Trunk or Treat this year will take place on October 23rd. The township will soon be releasing more information on the event.
