Hey kids! Get out there and have fun trick or treatin' this year but we want you to be a little more cautious to make sure the evening is memorable and fun:
- Celebrate outside rather than indoors
- Go out in small groups, such as your friend bubble or class cohort
We’ve received a few requests from residents asking for kids to stick to their own neighborhoods/areas and this is only to help minimize crowds in the more popular neighborhoods (you know which ones). Please understand there are neighbors who are uncomfortable with opening their doors this year so they may choose not to hand out candy. They will either leave their house lights off or they will leave a tray out with a sign that says "take one."
