TThanb you to everyone who responded to the trick or treat survey! Based on the survey, there are approximately 80 homes and 125 children that will be out trick or treating in University Place! The map is located on the reverse side to help all the ghosts and goblins search for treats!
The New Events Committee will mark the participating homes on Thursday and Friday with decorative Halloween yard signs. We hope everyone finds the map and information to be helpful!
REMINDER: Guidelines for Trick or Treating Safety
According to the CDC, trick or treating is considered a moderate risk activity with the following precautions:
✓ Create a treat table at the end of your driveway or edge of your yard with individually wrapped treats or goodie bags lined up for families to grab and go
✓ Do not use a communal treat bowl or basket from which children can grab from and avoid hand to hand transactions
✓ If you are preparing goodie bags, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after preparing the bags
✓ Practice social distancing and only trick or treat with family members, avoid large groups and gatherings
✓ A costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth mask and should not be used unless it is mode of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers the mouth and nose and does not leave gaps around the face
✓ Do not wear a costume mask over a protective doth mask as it may be dangerous if the costume mask makes it hard to breathe. Instead, consider a Halloween themed cloth mask.
PLEASE beep an eye out for trick or treaters on sidewalks and roads. If you plan to host a Halloween gathering, ash your guests to observe the posted speed limit of 25 mph. Parents should make sure your children are familiar with street safety and are wearing easy to see costumes that do not obstruct your child’s vision.
Finally, we ask that all trick or treaters be respectfully of the homes on the map who do not wish to be disturbed this year, marked as purple on the map.
We hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween!
