[ARCHIVED] Boulder City Promotes Safe, Healthy Halloween

Halloween Pumpkins

BOULDER CITY – Halloween is a favorite for the kids – and the kid in each of us. But traditional, door-to-door trick-or-treating can expose you and your neighbors to viruses, including COVID-19. The Southern Nevada Health Department has some suggestions for alternative activities. If you do plan to participate in traditional trick-or-treating activities this year, these guidelines may help to reduce the risk for you, your family, and the community.

Trick-or-treaters should always be alert while walking, use a flashlight, visit only those homes with porch lights on and use bright clothes or reflective materials to make it easier to be seen at night. “Boulder City Police Officers plan to be on patrol that night to make sure children who are outdoors are safe,” said Boulder City Mayor Kiernan McManus. “Drivers should be extra alert as well. Parents should be sure their children are inside - and home owners should stop handing out goodies - by 9:00 p.m.” 

One option for a safer Halloween is the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce’s “Trunk or Treat” event at Veterans’ Memorial Park Saturday, October 24, 2020. More than two dozen businesses will be decorating vehicles and coming up with clever ways to disperse candy, without person-to-person contact. The cost is $5 per car and drivers can tune into 89.5 FM to hear the fun music as they drive around the loop collecting candy from all our great businesses.  “Families are going to love ‘Trunk or Treat Drive-thru Edition’,” said Jill Lagan, CEO of the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce. “Families can safely enjoy fun Halloween decorations, see local businesses supporting a great community event, and enjoy a picture as a souvenir to keep, even after all the candy is gone!”
