Trick or Treating to take place in Georgetown

GEORGETOWN, Del. – The Town of Georgetown is moving forward with plans to hold Trick or Treating on Halloween.

Trick or Treating in the town is scheduled to take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 31st. Due to COVID-19, officials are asking homes that are interested in participating to turn on their porch lights, and anyone wishing to trick or treat is asked to respect that if a light is not on, the home is not participating. Apartments/condos should place a sign on their door indicating participation, and if there is no sign on the door indicating participation, trick or treaters are asked to respect those wishes and not solicit.

Trick or treaters and residents handing out candy are strongly encouraged to wear masks. Residents should not allow the “help yourself” method of candy distribution.

The Georgetown Police Department is also reminding citizens of the importance of parental involvement. They recommend setting a time limit for children to trick or treat, accompanying small children while trick or treating, remind older children to not take shortcuts through backyards, and remind children not to enter a strange house or car.
