Trick or Treat

If you’re looking for a place to head out Trick or Treating with the kids tonight, those in the know say the area near Harrisville Dam, where the homes are well-decorated and close together, is always a winner in town. For the past several years, one resident even took up a collection to help those passing out candy in the area.

Wherever you go tonight, stay safe Burrillville, and view a list of Halloween safety tips from the Rhode Island Department of Health here.


Burrillville resident Jessica Hancock is now collecting gently worn and new sneakers for 261 Fearless Inc. Donation bins are located at New Rhode Nutrition and Jesse Smith Memorial Library.
