BEGGARS NIGHT 2020
Goodness knows 2020 has not been a very kind year so far, aside from the illness and worse caused by the virus, it has been particularly hard on our young people. In agreement with that sentiment, a group of Mayors and Village managers met with the Licking County Health Department (LCHD) to find a way to safely offer Beggars Night (Trick or Treat). It was agreed that if possible, we would hold the event countywide on Thursday, October 29th from 5:30pm to 7pm.
Aligning the event in each community will reduce the commingling of communities, which may lead to an increase of COVID-19 cases. In addition, LCHD recommends:
In addition, LCHD asks that participants:
Lastly, for people handing out candy, please do so fromyour porch, weather permitting or turn on a porch light.
People trick or treating, please do not to knock on doors if there is not a light on.
