Neighborhood Trick-or-Treat

Trick-or-Treat in Edgewood will take place on Saturday, October 31st from 6-8pm. As in years past, if you do not wish to participate, please leave porch lights turned off. Also, remember to follow normal safety precautions (such as staying in a group with your household). In addition, we strongly encourage residents to leave candy in pre-wrapped packages at or near the curb to encourage social distancing.  

Here are some additional recommendations from the CDC to participate safely: 

Distributing Treats:

  • Avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters.
  • Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take. 
  • Wash hands before handling treats. 
  • Wear a mask.

 
Trick or Treating:

  • Make your cloth mask part of your costume. (a costume mask is NOT a substitute)
  • Do NOT wear a costume mask over a cloth mask. It can make breathing more difficult.

  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you 
  • Bring hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol) with you and use it after touching objects or other people. Parents: supervise young children using hand sanitizer.
