[ARCHIVED] Halloween Update: Trick-or-Treat Scheduled in Beachwood

The original item was published from October 2, 2020 11:49 AM to January 3, 2022 12:46 PM

Pending any new orders from the State or County Department or Board of Health, trick-or-treating will take place in Beachwood on Halloween: Saturday, October 31, from 6:00 - 8:00 PM.

The safety of our residents is our top priority, but we will need your help to make this possible.

Trick-or-Treaters and their chaperones MUST:

  • Wear COVID-appropriate masks – incorporate it into your child’s costume. Masks are required for all participants over the age of 2-years old
  • Carry and frequently apply hand sanitizer
  • Only trick-or treat at houses with the porch light on
  • Only trick-or-treat with members of your own household
  • Observe social-distancing regulations

Door-answerers are advised to:

  • Hand out treats individually rather than using a group candy-bowl
  • Wear gloves while distributing candy and only have one household member handing out treats
  • Place candy in the child’s bag, not their hands
  • Other creative and social-distanced options include hanging treats from a wall, fence, or decorated board, or by using a candy slide made of PVC pipe
  • Mark 6-feet lengths on the walkway to your front door to promote social distancing

Residents who do not wish to participate in trick-or-treating this year are advised to leave off their porch lights and enjoy an age-appropriate scary movie on TV while munching on plenty of homemade or factory-wrapped treats.

The City reserves the right to rescind trick-or treat pending updated orders from the state or county Board of Health.
