TRICK OR TREATING
East Bradford recognizes Halloween, rain or shine, between 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm on October 31. While we understand the excitement and hope for tradition regarding this year’s Halloween festivities, East Bradford Township asks that all families participate at a level that is comfortable for them, while still adhering to CDC guidelines (which may be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html). The Township takes no responsibility for personal choices, we just ask that every family do what is best for them, while considering how it may affect others.
Public meetings may be conducted in person or via teleconference due to the COVID-19 virus. The status of each meeting will be posted on the calendar and on the Boards and Commissions page. If you have questions, contact Mandie Cantlin at email@example.com or (610) 436-5108 x102.
