TRICK OR TREATING – CITY OF BELLE PLAINE

The City of Belle Plaine approved both Trunk or Treat & Trick or Treat for Saturday October 31. Trunk or Treat will start at 2 p.m. and you should check the BPCDC Facebook page for the details of the event. (This event is sponsored by BPCDC.)

Trunk or Treat in 2018.

Cars will be spaced out & Face Masks are encouraged.

Trick or Treat Hours will be from 5 to 8:00 pm & if a resident does not wish to participate, turn off your porch light. Please respect a resident’s right to not participate in Trick or Treating. Face Masks are strongly encouraged for both the residents & those who participate in Trick or Treating.
The council would further like the public to know that Trick or Treating is a volunteer activity that is not recommended by the CDC this year.

The CDC has labeled the following activities as high-risk C-19 virus activities.

  • Participating in traditional trick-or-treating where treats are handed to children who go door to door
  • Having trunk-or-treat where treats are handed out from trunks of cars lined up in large parking lots
  • Attending crowded costume parties held indoors
  • Going to an indoor haunted house where people may be crowded together and screaming
  • Going on hayrides or tractor rides with people who are not in your household

This year, the CDC is encouraging residents to CELEBRATE a COVID-19 HALLOWEEN CREATIVELY and here are a few helpful ideas to keep you and others extra safe while still celebrating Halloween:

  • Make treat bags and hang them from streamers outside for kids to grab;
  • Have a Halloween movie night with household members either at home or drive-in;
  • Do reverse trick-or-treat by dropping off small gift bags on your neighbor’s porch;
  • Put on a trunk-or-treat on your street (Halloween decorated car trunks) with socially distanced parked cars in driveways;
  • Coordinate a contact-free neighborhood scavenger hunt;

WHILE THE CDC IS RECOMMENDING AGAINST NORMAL HALLOWEEN ACTIVITIES THE CITY OF BELLE PLAINE IS REMINDING EVERYONE IT IS A VOLUNTEER ACTIVITY AND IS NOT REQUIRED OF ANYONE.
AS FOR TRICK OR TREATING IN BELLE PLAINE THE OFFICIAL CITY HOURS ARE FROM 5 TO 8 PM AND THE CITY ENCOURAGES EVERYONE TO HAVE A SAFE TIME.
