Halloween information and safety tips

halloweenThe city has received questions about trick-or-treating this year from a lot of our residents. It is important to note that the city does not schedule or regulate Halloween. The Governor’s orders currently require outdoor gathering in excess of 10 people to have approval, so we encourage you to keep your trick-or-treating crew to just your immediate family. 

To keep things fun and safe this year, we encourage you to be smart and do your part. Here are a few tips:

Trick-or-treaters: 

  • Plan a costume that has a fun mask, practice social distancing and make sure you wash your hands after you get home.
  • Wear light-colored clothes and take a flashlight.
  • Take hand sanitizer and/ or wear gloves.
  • Remember, don’t approach a house that has its porchlight off.

Neighbors: 

  • Leave a bowl of candy or a teal pumpkin trinket (and a bottle of hand sanitizer, if you wish) at the end of your front sidewalk and sit on your porch to wave at the kids walking the neighborhood. This allows kids to safely walk the neighborhood while maintain social distance.
  • Turn your porchlight off if you do not wish to participate.

The CDC has issued information on Halloween activities, it can be viewed here.
