Schenectady, NY -  Mayor McCarthy announced today that Halloween trick-or-treating in the City of  Schenectady will be officially observed on Thursday, October 31, 2019 from 2:00 - 8:00 p.m., with earlier trick-or-treat  hours provided for younger children.

“As has been the case in previous years, we are asking that trick-or-treaters conclude their door-to-door visits prior to 8:00 p.m.,” said McCarthy.  “We are also asking that residents turn off their porch lights and stop handing out goodies at this time.” 

The Schenectady Fire Department will be supplementing Halloween festivities by handing out candy, activity books and fire safety information at all four of its locations.

The locations are:

          Station #1 – 360 Veeder Avenue

          Station #2 – 1515 State Street

          Station #3 – Third Avenue
