Find your Trick or Treat times here.

Storm-related darkness will not interfere with Trick-or-Treat times in the boroughs of Macungie and Alburtis.

Macungie and Alburtis will hold the annual ritual 6-8 p.m. tonight.

Macungie Mayor Rick Hoffman signed an emergency disaster declaration for the Borough of Macungie on Monday.

Macungie Council President Jean Nagle made the decision Wednesday not to postpone Trick-or-Treat in Macungie.

Lower Macungie Township has changed the time of its Trick-or-Treat to 3-6 p.m. Saturday.

Lower Mac released the following statement:

"Due to reports that power could be out until Sunday, the Trick-or-Treat hours were scheduled during the day for safety reasons. If your children are Trick-or-Treating without an adult, please remind them to be careful when it starts to get dark. Have fun and be safe!

Last weekend an Upper Macungie boy was killed when he was hit by a car while Trick-or-Treating on dark roads.

Agreed....poor decision, those that do go out please be extra careful, reflective clothing and lots of flashlights, and please don't touch or go near any wires,treat all wires as tho they are live wires.

We need to boycot tonight and have our own on Saturday night! Hopefully we will have power by then. Spread the word!

We DID boycott! We are praying no child was hurt tonight because of Nagle's irresponsible decision!! How could Jean Nagle make such an incredibly STUPID decision that puts our children's safety at risk and all in the name of Halloween! A candy bar is more important!! What kind of individual would make such a decision!? This storm was a tragic one and the majority of our borough still without power, attempting to stay warm, repair damages, etc... Secondly, what lessons do we teach our children when the "responsible" individuals in positions such as council president are unable to get their priorities straight! Shame on Jean Nagle! When is her term complete?!

That'll go down as one of the worst decisions ever! What would the harm be to postpone to Sat aftn like the rest of lower macungie. You can't see a bloody thing without porch or street lights! Total stupidity!!!! Alburtis had theirs, but they HAD POWER !!!

It is almost like some members of macungie council are purposely trying to be the worst public servants ever. Maybe they are trying to get into the guinness book of world records for worst council or trying to get into ripley's believe it or not. I just hope they dont get anyone hurt or killed along their way there.
