A lot has been canceled this year due to COVID-19…but (for now) Halloween is safe!
Okay, so the annual Village Halloween Parade has been canceled, and there probably won’t be costume parties, but we still have trick-or-treating!
In an interview on News 12 Long Island this morning, anchor Tara Joyce asked Governor Cuomo about trick-or-treating directly, and he said:
I would not ban trick-or-treaters going door to door. I don’t think that’s appropriate. You have neighbors – if you want to go knock on your neighbor’s door, God bless you and I’m not going to tell you not to. If you want to go for a walk with your child through the neighborhood, I’m not gonna tell you you can’t take your child to the neighborhood, I’m not going to do that – I’ll give you my advice and guidance and then you will make a decision what you do that night.
So we’ll see what the guidance is that night and if parents ultimately decide to take their kids around (and if we should still stock up on candy!) but at least that part won’t be totally cancelled. One thing we’re predicting? Lots of costumes with masks that cover your mouth…
