Great Halloween Get Together Cancelled for 2020
So many great memories from The Great Halloween Get Togethers
over the past few years. A favorite of super heroes, princesses, and so many
cute costumes, it is a fun community event with music, games and so many families,
friends, dogs in costumes, and treats.
Here at the City, we have given it so much thought as to how we
could alter it to make it safe event, while still having a fun evening. How can
we follow CDC guidelines of social distancing, wearing of masks not only on the
little ones, but adults and volunteers. After brain storming our options, it
was determined that we are not able to host it this year, which makes us sad.
Safety and social distancing are just 2 factors we took into
consideration. Like many of the larger community celebrations, it takes so many
local merchants, businesses, organizations, sponsors and volunteers to make The
Great Halloween Get Together a success. With the current condition of COVID 19
and the affects that it has on the economy and all involved, it is best to
cancel for this year and come back stronger next year.
As like many cancelled events this year, we can do PLAN B. Using
the same concept as the Please Come to My Neighborhood Program that we hosted
this summer in the neighborhoods, we will be teaming up with Ashes Fire Truck
Rental visiting neighborhoods and handing out treats. Watch for more details
this week about how your neighborhood can be part of this program on Halloween
We are sad that it will not take place this year because it is a
favorite event of ours as well, but we hope to see you in the neighborhoods.
