Trick-or-treating will proceed as scheduled on Friday, October 30* from 6 to 8 p.m.
While trick-or-treating will be permitted, the City of Lancaster encourages families to consider lower-risk activities as an alternative to traditional trick-or-treating. Guidance has been provided by the CDC and can be found at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html#halloween.
Those who choose to take part in traditional trick-or-treating are doing so at their own risk and should understand how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 before participating.
Regardless of how individuals choose to celebrate Halloween this year, please keep the following guidance in mind:
*In compliance with the Lancaster Inter-Municipal Committee policy, trick-or-treating will be be between 6 and 8 pm on Halloween (October 31), except when Halloween falls on a Saturday or Sunday, in which case trick-or-treating should be on the prior Friday.
