In a bright spot that many of us need in 2020, trick-or-treat festivities are able to move forward in communities throughout central Ohio. As many costumes often employ masks, this is a good time to have fun with the family and get creative with your mask-wearing to cover safety and silliness! Parents taking kids out to trick-or-treat are advised to limit the number of houses visited, use sanitizing wipes on exterior candy wrappers and eat only factory-made treats. Houses offering treats this year are advised avoid distributing candy from a common bowl and consider lining up candy individually at a socially distanced table. See more guidelines from the State of Ohio here.

Though trick-or-treat is still taking place in many communities, some of the dates, timing and information have changed to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Check out our list below for the latest information on trick-or treat times in Columbus!
