Petersburg cancels 2020 Halloween Trunk-a-Treat event


PETERSBURG, Va. (WRIC) — Petersburg’s annual Halloween Trunk-a-Treat event has been canceled for 2020.

According to a Thursday release, the decision was made due to the COVID-19 pandemic and current restrictions involving large-scale events.

City officials say the event typically draws hundreds of people.

Trick-or-treating on Halloween is a cultural event, as opposed to a City-sponsored event. Therefore, the City cannot and is not canceling general trick-or-treating activities. However, those considering participating in traditional house-to-house trick-or-treating are urged to consider the risks detailed by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH).
