Beggar's Night Announced

Beggars Night

Beggar’s Night will be held on Saturday, October 31 from 6-8 pm. Below are a few tips from the Ohio Department of Health on how to stay safe this Halloween:


• If taking your children trick-or-treating, limit the number of houses you visit and ask your children to stay as far from treat-givers as possible. For small children, consider holding the bag for them. 
• Wipe off candy wrappers with sanitizing wipes when you arrive home. (NOTE: Never wipe unpackaged food with wipes.) 
• Allow children to eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid homemade treats made by strangers. 
• If your child is at greater risk of complications from COVID-19, contact your doctor before allowing participation in Halloween activities.
• For trick-or-treating, reach out to neighbors to discuss ways to ensure 6-foot social distancing, how candy can most safely be distributed, and the need for face coverings. 
• Refrain from having children select their own treats from a bowl/common container or set up a hand-sanitizing station. Consider placing treats on porch steps or a table in the driveway with a sign asking children to take only one. Or use other creative ways to distribute treats, such as using a candy “slide” made of PVC pipe, or hanging treats from a wall or fence.
