Town of Pulaski cancels Trunk or Treat event; Treat Trail still a go

Local News

PULASKI, Va. (WFXR) — The Town of Pulaski has decided to cancel their Trunk or Treat event, which is usually held Jackson Park.

This decision was made Thursday, Oct. 1. Town officials note that due to the large number of people that would be present, there is not a safe way to implement the required social distancing guidelines to ensure a successful and responsible event for everyone involved.

However, the Costume Contest portion of the event will still be taking place, virtually. More information on the Costume Contest will be released at a later time.

Town officials have decided that participation for the Treat Trail will be at the discretion of individual businesses. As such, the Treat Trail will not be officially sponsored by the Town of Pulaski. However, there will be updates on which businesses will be participating so residents can map out a trick-or-treating route.

We know that this news may not be what some were hoping to hear, but we believe that this is the best course of action to allow families and children to still have fun on Halloween night without additional risk regarding COVID19.

Town officials recommended other Halloween events for residents to participate in, such as the drive-through Treat Trail at Randolph Park or the Halloween Bash at Calfee Park.

The Town of Pulaski is not involved in decisions regarding door-to-door trick-or-treating. Officials
continue to recommend that residents follow the CDC’s guidelines on best social distancing practices while participating in Halloween-related activities.
