To help local Trick-or-Treaters stay safe on Sunday, when Trick-or-Treat will be held in Hellertown and Lower Saucon Township from 3 to 5 p.m., the Lower Saucon Township Police Department has shared the following safety tips via their Crimewatch website.

Before you Trick-or-Treat door-to-door, stop by the Saucon Source office at 656 Main St., First Floor, for a treat/snack and to meet publisher Josh Popichak at our special ‘Treat-iversary’ open house. Sunday, Oct. 28 is the fourth anniversary of the launch of SauconSource.com, which has grown to become one of the most-read independent online news sources in the area.

During Trick-or-Treat the Hellertown Historical Society will also have open the 1872 jail it owns on Laubach Alley, which volunteers have recently restored.

Volunteers will be on hand to give out treats and talk about the one-room stone building behind the 600 block of Main Street, between Penn Street and the Silver Creek.

The weather forecast for Sunday afternoon in Hellertown calls for cloudy skies with a high in the low 50s. There is a slight chance of showers after 2 p.m. There is no Trick-or-Treat rain date.
