The Town of Mattapoisett would like residents to celebrate this year’s Halloween holiday safely.
With the risk of COVID-19 still very much present, and with positive case counts both nationally and locally on the rise, local officials are strongly discouraging door-to-door trick-or-treating this year.
Rather than celebrating Halloween in the traditional manner, local organizations are providing safe alternatives to residents. We are hopeful these events can help keep the spirit of Halloween alive for all children and families in Mattapoisett.
The Mattapoisett Lions Club will be holding a Free Fall Family Drive-By event at Old Hammondtown Elementary School on October 24 from 12:00 to 3:00 pm. They will be handing out (1) pumpkin and (1) goody bag per child.
The Mattapoisett Police Association has cancelled this year’s Halloween Parade. Instead, the Association will be having its own Trick-or-Treat drive through event on Halloween at Center School on October 31 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.
Proper precautions will be taken at each event so that families can enjoy the holiday with their loved ones safely.
The Town of Mattapoisett has done an admirable job of slowing the spread of COVID-19, but the efforts can not end now. We must all remain vigilant in preventing any further transmission of the virus. Please help by doing your part in celebrating Halloween safely.
