Algoma recommends against trick or treating

Algoma is the largest city in the area to advise against door-to-door trick or treating for Halloween. Community hours are typically set by the Parks and Recreation Department, but increasing COVID-19 activity, input from the city council, and guidelines set down by public health agencies have forced Algoma to take unprecedented measures this year. Director Sara Robertson says that there are other options for kids looking to get their hands on some candy.


Robertson concedes that a vast majority of the trick or treating done in Algoma is typically done during the community sanctioned time each year. Comparatively, the Villages of Luxemburg and Casco have opted to go ahead with their events, both scheduled for Sunday, November 1st. The City of Sturgeon Bay operates trick or treating through the police department, planned for the 31st from 4:00 to 7:00 PM. They have all said worsening COVID-19 conditions could force changes.
