ANNOUNCEMENT: TRICK OR TREATING OCTOBER 31, 2020
The celebration of Halloween and Trick-or-Treating will take place as scheduled “at your own risk” on Saturday, October 31st between the hours of 3pm to 7pm. Halloween is not a Borough organized event, and the Mayor and Council feel it appropriate that parents weigh the possible risks for their individual family and determine whether their child will participate or not. Likewise, residents have the option to distribute candy, or to choose to forego candy distribution in this unprecedented time of Covid.
The Borough is asking that community members, who wish to avoid contact with trick-or-treaters, post signage on their door indicating that they are NOT participating. A printable sign is included below for your convenience.
All individuals participating in Trick-or-Treating should be wearing masks, including those parents chaperoning their children. A face covering should also be worn as a protective measure by all members of households that are distributing candy.
Social distancing should remain a priority during this Halloween tradition, and groups should be limited in size.
Residents may refer to the previously posted guidance released by the New Jersey Department of Health, which provides further safety recommendations for the celebration of Halloween.
Please have a SAFE and HAPPY Halloween!
