PLEASANT PRAIRIE, WI (WLIP & AP)–The Village of Pleasant Prairie will join the city of Kenosha in holding Trick-or-Treating on October 31st.
Village officials decided to move the event to Halloween itself to coincide with the city’s Trick-or-Treating hours the same day.
Officials want to stop visitors from coming to take advantage of another event outside of their community to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19.
The change comes as state health officials are recommending against trick-or-treating as usual this Halloween because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Department of Health Services says going house-to-house and having in-person contact is not a good idea.
If individual communities decide to go ahead with traditional trick-or-treating, health officials recommend leaving individual treat bags on the porch for children to pick up.
