Trick-or-Treating in Harrington

The Harrington City Council voted to approve trick-or-treating with safety guidelines.  Trick-or-treating will be held on Saturday, October 31, from 6 pm to 8 pm for ages 12 and under. If participating, please follow guidelines established by the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) including:

  • Wear a mask. Both trick-or-treaters and those handing out candy should wear a face covering. Halloween masks are not sufficient.
  • No homemade treats. Only store-bought, prepackaged items can be given out.
  • No large groups. Walk only with people from the same household and wait for one group to leave a house before approaching.
  • Be outside to hand out treats. Residents should wait outside to distribute candy. Trick-or-treaters should not go to the door or into a house. 
  • Keep hands clean. Sanitize hands frequently.
  • Consider providing treats without direct contact. Place individual treat portions on the porch or make a candy chute.

If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19 or recently been exposed to a person with COVID-19, do not participate in any in-person Halloween festivities and do not give out candy to trick-or-treaters.

Please see the DPH Halloween Guidance
