NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 31: People trick-or-treat in a Brooklyn neighborhood on Halloween night on October 31, 2015 in New York City. Throughout the country children and adults are dressing-up in costumes to both scare and entertain as they make their way through neighborhoods collecting candy treats.

Los Angles County just released Halloween guidelines and door-to-door trick-or-treating is off the menu. Is this a sign of things to come here in Massachusetts?


If you recall, about a month ago, Salem released their plans for a scaled-back Halloween experience, which is a big deal considering that the Witch City is the epicenter of all things Hallow and Weenie in Massachusetts every October. And in my city of Woburn, the annual Halloween Parade has been cancelled for 2020.


So is this CBS story about L.A. County banning trick-or-treating in all forms–door-to-door, car-to-car–a preview of what other cities and communities both in MA and nationwide have planned when dealing with Halloween this year? Time will tell. And we’ll keep you up-to-date over on our Wicked Fall Guide.
