Halloween 2020 in the Village of Gilberts

 Halloween 2020 in the Village of Gilberts 

Like all communities, we've have faced many uncertainties this year due to COVID-19 and the Village of Gilberts continues to comply with all Federal, State and County guidelines. If the State or County issues any further guidance or restrictions for Halloween trick-or-treating, the Village will continue to comply with and communicate their messages.

Trick-or-treating will be allowed this year in the Village of Gilberts. If your family is comfortable with and chooses to trick-or-treat on Halloween, please follow the Village’s official trick-or-treating hours of 3:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 31, 2020.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) places traditional trick-or-treating in a high-risk category due to COVID-19. The Village believes trick-or-treating can be made a safer activity for everyone with the following new recommendations:

  • Do not participate in trick-or-treat activities if you or family members have any COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Residents who feel comfortable participating should leave front porch lights on. Trick-or-treaters should avoid any homes with no front porch lights on.
  • If residents would like to participate and do not feel comfortable handing candy out, please leave front porch lights on while keeping candy out front in a well-lit area.
  • Practice social distancing by staying 6 feet away from others.
  • Wear a mask when social distancing is difficult to maintain.
  • Wait for all trick-or-treaters to clear the pathway before proceeding to a residence.
