The City believes trick or treating can safely take place as long as people avoid large groups and make the extra effort to socially distance and follow CDC guidelines. Halloween has always been an opt-in activity, so those who do not feel comfortable participating simply do not have to.
For those who do wish to participate, please do so between the hours of 5:30 – 7:30 PM.
Please consider the following safety tips and ideas for a socially distant Halloween celebration:
• Do not participate in trick-or-treating if you are feeling unwell.
• Face coverings should be worn by all participants, including individuals passing out treats.
• Do not trick-or-treat in groups with others; trick-or-treat as a household.
• Maintain a safe distance from other trick-or-treating groups, and do not approach a house until the previous group has left.
• Please do not distribute homemade treats or fresh fruits.
• Make sure your children wash their hands after trick-or-treating especially before eating their candy.
• Turn ON your porch lamp or outdoor lights to show that your home is welcoming trick-or-treaters.
