Central Ohio Trick or Treat
The recommended trick-or-treat date for 2021 is Thursday, Oct. 28. Residents are encouraged to check their community’s website to verify the date and time of activities.
For several years, our local government members have supported a suggested, unified trick-or-treat date for the region.
When Halloween, October 31, falls on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, Trick or Treat is held the Thursday prior to October 31.
When October 31 falls on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, Trick or Treat is held on October 31.
Local communities make the decision to change or keep their trick-or-treat date and time.
Inclement weather: In the event of inclement weather, the recommended date will not change. Parents/guardians are encouraged to exercise good judgment in allowing children to participate.
COVID-19: Similarly, it will be up to each community to decide what they are doing about Trick or Treat or an alternative version in light of COVID-19. Please check your community’s website. Parents/guardians are encouraged to exercise good judgment in allowing children to participate.
