Will Lexington have trick-or-treating in 2020? When will it be?
Trick-or-treating in Lexington will take place on Saturday, October 31 from 6 pm to 8 pm. As in the past, there will be more police patrols on the evening of Halloween.
Candy should be wrapped individually, or in individual goodie bags, and placed on a table, driveway or porch for trick-or-treaters to pick-up themselves. It is not recommended to use bowls of treats that allow individuals to reach-in and grab candy, or give out treats by hand.
Health guidelines suggest trick-or-treating only in family groups, staying in your own neighborhood, and using hand sanitizer often. Halloween masks are not considered protective face coverings.
Following federal, state and local public health recommendations, some normal trick-or-treat activities are not recommended:
- Trunk-or-treat events with large groups
- costume parties
- haunted houses
- hayrides/tractor rides
- large crowd events are considered unsafe, high-risk activities
Halloween events and programs organized by Lexington Division of Parks and Recreation that have been canceled this year include:
- Halloween Festival & Thriller Parade
