Boo! Trick-or-Treat is a GO !!

Parkesburg Borough’s Statement on Trick-or-Treat Activities

While there have been many rumors and overall uncertainty with this year’s Trick-or-Treat due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Borough of Parkesburg will not be cancelling Trick-or-Treat.  As this year is quite different than in years past, we ask that the following precautions are taken:

  • Trick-or-Treat during the recommended times of 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on October 31st.
  • Respect your neighbors’ position to actively participate or not.  If a house will be participating, please turn on your outside lighting to signify participation.
  • We discourage soliciting nonresidential properties (businesses that may be open).
  • We discourage soliciting in multifamily dwellings (e.g. Westminster, Parkesburg Schoolhouse apartments).
  • Be creative with passing out treats.
  • Walk in smaller groups (no more than 10 juveniles and chaperones) and practice the appropriate social distancing and required mask usage.
  • Follow the CDC guidelines for Halloween.  These can be found here - https://www.cdc.gov/.../daily-life-coping/holidays.html..

Whatever choice you and your family decide to do, please have a safe and Happy Halloween!
