During a stop on the PA Votes Blue bus tour, Sen. Bob Casey  hands out candy to children at York City's Trunk or Treat event.

York City has set the date for its annual Trunk or Treat event, offering a safe environment for the city's children who want to get their candy fix on Halloween.

This year's event will take place 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31, at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church, located at 839 W. Market St. The event is free to the community and will include food, prizes and a bounce house.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. The York City Police and Fire Department also will be attending to interact with the community.

Those who wish to bring a vehicle should contact Tina Charles at yorkcitytrunkortreat@gmail.com or LaQuinn Thompson at  lthompson@stmatt.org. Registration is free.

Those who bring a vehicle with a trunk of candy or school supplies could win an award for the most creative trunk display.
