Kokomo, Howard County, Greentown and Russiaville set uniform trick-or-treat hours.

In a joint statement, the City of Kokomo, Howard County, Greentown and Russiaville have set uniform trick-or-treat hours for the 2020 Halloween holiday. Agreed upon hours are 4 to 8 pm on Saturday, October 31. Those wishing to participate should follow Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommended guidelines and leave their porch light on.

“This is a highlight of the year for many people,” said Mayor Tyler Moore. “With consideration to the pandemic, we want to ensure that people may participate in the safest manner possible.”

Social distancing, face coverings, and seeking alternative celebrations are some of the ways the CDC suggest Halloween can be celebrated in safe manner.

Howard County Board of Commissioners president Paul Wyman said the uniform hours serve an important purpose.

“By having the same trick-or-treat hours throughout our county, it will eliminate any confusion and help provide a safe, enjoyable experience for our children,” said Wyman
