Trick or treat…give us something safe to eat

Region – Halloween is a time of year filled with spooky, scary fun. But unfortunately, there is one unwelcome scary component threatening to ruin this year’s holiday – that is of course, the coronavirus. As families grapple with the decision to allow their kids to go trick or treating, most communities are not issuing a mandate but rather are leaving it up to individual choices. If residents want to pass out candy, they may. Those who choose not to do so can simply leave their front lights off.

Other families are creating festive holiday displays in their yards that they welcome people to enjoy as they drive by.

In a year where kids have faced so many challenges the hope is that this particular holiday can be done in a way that is fun but still keeps everyone safe.
