Central Ohio Trick or Treat
The recommended trick-or-treat date for 2020 is Thursday, Oct. 29 from 6-8 p.m. 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.
