Get your kid's ready. Ghost? Witch? Pirate? What will it be this year for your kids?

Trick-or-Treat in Pittsfield is almost here, but mark your calendar for October 30th, or you could miss out. This year's Trick-Or-Treat will be held on Saturday, October 30th as opposed to Sunday, October 31st.

The Office Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer is reminding city residents today that Trick-or-Treat in the City of Pittsfield will be held from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm on Saturday, Oct. 30th.

A couple of other thoughts... don't forget to pin a glow stick or some kind of light to your child so that they can easily be seen by oncoming vehicles. Oh, and don't forget to "check" your kid's candy. This is a good time to swipe a couple of goodies for yourself. Oh, come on... you know you do it. I'm kidding of course. (But not really).

The Mayor's office reminds you that if you plan on participating in the festivities this year, you will want to please leave your porch or exterior light on.
