Trick-or-Treating in the City of Killeen will be held on Oct. 30

Halloween 2021 Oct 30th flier

Halloween is Sunday, Oct. 31 and door-to-door celebrations will be Saturday from 6-9p.m.

KILLEEN, Texas (Oct. 4, 2021) – The City of Killeen is recommending residents observe Trick-or-Treating on Saturday, Oct. 30 from 6-9p.m. The City also encourages everyone to take the proper precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Halloween is on Sunday, Oct. 31, but the City has reserved Saturday, Oct. 30 for trick-or-treaters and for those who would like to pass out candy or treats. As a reminder, children should always be accompanied by an adult.

Households that wish to distribute candy should turn the front porch lights on to indicate they welcome trick-or-treating. Trick-or-Treaters should only approach houses that have porch lights on and should never enter a home or car for a treat.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers door-to-door trick-or-treating a higher risk activity for the virus to spread and recommends parents and kids limit large crowds. Anyone choosing to participate should observe the following precautions:

Trick-or-Treaters:

  • Stay home if you or any member of your group is sick
  • Wear a cloth mask (costume masks are not appropriate substitutes for protective masks)
  • Keep at least six feet of distance at all times; avoid parties, encourage small groups
  • Remain outdoors
  • Observe good hygiene by using hand sanitizer and washing hands
  • Wash hands and inspect candy before enjoying

Participating Houses/Venues:

  • Do not participate if you or any member of your household is sick
  • Wear a cloth mask when interacting with trick-or-treaters
  • Keep at last six feet of distance from trick-or-treaters
  • Keep all activities outdoors
  • Wash hands frequently when preparing treats and before and after delivering them
  • Consider contactless delivery, by pre-packaging treats and setting them out to grab

When planning Halloween costumes, parents are reminded that children’s costumes should not impair vision, hearing, or movement. Costumes should also be flame resistant and bright or reflective.

The City of Killeen will also hold our annual Fall Festival on Oct. 30 from 5-9p.m. at the Stonetreee Golf Club. The Killeen Police Department’s annual Trunk-or-Treat will be Oct. 30 from 6-8p.m. at KPD’s headquarters. More information to come on both.

The City of Killeen wishes residents a safe and Happy Halloween!
