Trick or Treat Time
It’s time to put on those costumes and say, “Trick or treat!” While the Halloween fun will certainly be different this year, the show is still going on in some parts of Louisiana on Saturday, October 31.

Centers for Disease Control & Prevention have released recommendations to help keep your family safe this year by recommending alternative activities for your family. For those still planning on participating, the CDC says, “If you may have COVID-19 or you may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you should not participate in in-person Halloween festivities and should not give out candy to trick-or-treaters.”
