Halloween is a highly anticipated event each year for residents of all ages.  While this is not a town sponsored event, trick-or-treating is a time-honored tradition.  This year we hope to be able to have this event on October 31, 2020 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.  Please note that the CDC guidelines consider Halloween to be high-risk.  Families will need to decide on their own if and how they would like to participate.  Below are recommendations from the CDC on how to participate safely:

Make trick-or-treating safer

  • Avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters.
  • Give out treats outdoors, if possible.
  • Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take.
  • Wash hands before handling treats.
  • Wear a mask.

Wear a mask

  • Make your cloth mask part of your costume.
  • A costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth mask.
  • Do NOT wear a costume mask over a cloth mask. It can make breathing more difficult.
  • Masks should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing

Stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you

  • Indoors and outdoors, you are more likely to get or spread COVID-19 when you are in close contact with others for a long time.

Wash your hands

  • Bring hand sanitizer with you and use it after touching objects or other people.
  • Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Parents: supervise young children using hand sanitizer.
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you get home and before you eat any treats.

If CDC guidelines or State regulations change from now until Halloween, we will update you.  In the meantime, we appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
