FULL DETAILS: Trick-or-treating in Charles City

The Charles City city council and Mayor Dean Andrews didn’t really want to ‘do’ Halloween this year. The pandemic’s potential dangers continue to loom, and the council felt it wouldn’t be right to recommend trick-or-treating. 

However, the council had a thought: The community will probably do it either way, might as well create some ground rules for them to follow.

So, as of now, trick-or-treating will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on October 31st – aka Halloween night.


The ground rules are:

  • Households should opt-in to trick-or-treating by turning on their porch lights that night
  • Residents are recommended to wear a mask when handing out candy
  • Residents should hand out candy individually, rather than a collective bowl


Andrews asks trick-or-treaters refrain from gathering in crowds.
