*UPDATED* Trick Or Treat In The Berkshires & Other Halloween Events
I have a feeling that we are going to see more trick-or-treaters this year than we have in quite a while. As we see more and more people heading out, maskless, the same will be going the way of trick or treat.
If you plan where you will be trick or treating this year, here is what we know on trick-or-treat times and towns. This may change, and we will try our best to keep up with them up to Halloween if there are towns or times to be added or changed.
REMEMBER, We don't want to put a a damper on your trick or treating but please know that most COVID-19 precautions have been lifted but the virus is still present. It doesn't hurt to wear a cloth mask instead of a costume mask, reduce physical contact between people as much as possible, hand out candy with minimal or no contact such as in small bags, and clean hands frequently.
What we have so far unless written otherwise, Trick Or Treat will be on the 31st.
