Welcome.
I have seen dogs going trick or treating many times, but I have never seen piggies begging for treats before.

I don't think that would be very fun for them at all. Why not decorate their hutch with safe things for Halloween, perhaps you could have their hutch near your door for the evening for when you get trick or treaters come to you? That might be more appropriate?

No they are prey animals and this would really scare them, please do not do that to your Guinea pig, I am sure you love them very much so would want them to feel safe and happy at home, while you go out and enjoy Halloween

I don’t really think you have thought this through and I know you wouldn’t really consider stressing your little piggies just for a little novelty, would you🤔

Definitely no! If you want to celebrate Halloween with your guinea pigs make then edible paper treat bags with hay and veggies in.

I would never subject any piggie to something that's not natural for them to be comfortable with. When a piggie gets out of its comfort zone then it will/needs to hide and sleep. Taking it Trick or treating I'm sorry that's a no from me
I'm as prob others admire you for asking and we are a friendly bunch pls don't be offended by our replys.
Enjoy trick and treat and tell your piggie all about it when you get home. Pls.
