Halloween Information


This year’s Trick-or-Treat hours will be from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 31.  

The CDC has determined that traditional, door-to-door trick-or-treating is a higher-risk activity. The CDC recommends that individuals and families avoid higher-risk activities as much as possible. 

Please Remember 

Participating in trick-or-treating is a personal choice for each family, and neighbors may choose differently from others based on their own comfort levels. All trick-or-treaters are encouraged to be respectful of their neighbors’ decisions to participate in trick-or-treating or not.

*Should your family choose to trick-or-treat, please carefully review the safety tips below*


·         Stay home if you are sick. DO NOT hand out treats or trick-or-treat if you are sick.

·         Only trick-or-treat with people you live with. Going with people you don’t live with can expose you to COVID-19.

·         Wear a face mask that covers both your nose and mouth. Do not use a costume mask as a substitute for a cloth mask unless it’s made of 2 or more layers of breathable fabric. Do not wear a costume mask over a cloth mask, as it may become difficult to breathe.

·         Trick-or-treat in your neighborhood. Staying close to home may reduce the likelihood of the virus spreading out more broadly.

·         Do not come within 6 feet of other groups. Leave space on the sidewalk and when going up to houses.

·         Have hand sanitizer available. Use sanitizer often and before eating, or after coughing/sneezing. Wash your hands thoroughly when you return home.


Handing Out Treats

·         Turn on your porch light or post a sign on your door to let trick-or treaters know you’re participating.

·         Get creative with distributing candy while maintaining physical distance:

·         Limit contact: Candy should be handed out by one individual who should be masked and gloved. Children should not be allowed to grab candy out of a bowl. 

·         Use a table: Distribute treats by placing on a table on the front porch, walkway or driveway instead of handing treats out. 

·         Think outside the box: Consider fun ways of distributing candy and maintaining distance such as candy chutes or individual grab bags or paper cups.
