Update on Trick-or-Treating in the City

September 18, 2020 – With Halloween on the horizon, the City of Midland has clarified expectations for the celebration amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Halloween is a nationally-recognized celebration. The City provides general guidelines each year for trick-or-treating times – every October 31 from 6 – 8 p.m. – but does not organize nor orchestrate any activities or events related to Halloween. The City has no legal authority to “cancel” Halloween or restrict the free movement of its residents during this celebration. Residents can trick-or-treat in the community if desired.

Halloween 2020 trick-or-treating hours in the City of Midland will take place on Saturday, October 31 from 6 – 8 p.m. Should residents choose to participate, the City encourages all ghouls and goblins to adhere to current public health directives and recommendations from the Midland County Health Department, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the State of Michigan, including:

  • Wear a mask or facial covering – the scarier, the better!;
  • Observe six (6) feet of physical distance from others who live outside of your household;
  • Avoid participating in trick-or-treating if you or someone in your household has a positive case of COVID-19;
  • Avoid participating in trick-or-treating if you or someone in your household is currently experiencing symptoms of COVID-19; and
  • Any other guidance from public health officials.

The City will continue to monitor public health directives and executives orders from state and local health officials regarding COVID-19 and will provide updates as needed. Stay safe and have fun!
