Halloween in York: Trick-or-treat times, parades, festivals

York Dispatch

Yorkers go all out for Halloween.

Some neighbors barely waited — or didn't wait — for September to end before decorating their lawns, lampposts and porches with a variety of pumpkins, broomsticks and ghosts.

You still have three weeks to decide on your costume before the official day, but York County has plenty of scary fun to offer before small superheroes and zombies pound on your door demanding candy.
