Halloween 2020: Trick-or-treat times for central Indiana

News

It’s been a tough year for everyone–and there’s a lot of uncertainty about trick-or-treating.

The CDC has warned against door-to-door trick-or-treating this Halloween, citing concerns about the community spread of COVID-19.

The CDC suggested “one-way” trick-or-treating in which individually wrapped goodie bags are lined up for families to grab and go while practicing social distancing.
