BLUE HILL – Trick-or-treating may not be entirely canceled this year.
The Blue Hill Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, town office and local businesses and organizations have a plan to celebrate Halloween safely.
On Halloween, which is the Saturday after next, there will be trunk-or-treating outside in the school parking lot, along with trick-or-treating at several downtown businesses.
Chrissy Allen, board president for Blue Hill Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and the development director for Blue Hill Heritage Trust, said COVID-19 precautions will be taken in all locations.
“We’ve got a really fun, easy route. There’s a great place to park at the school so it’ll be a great opportunity for kiddos to sort of parade around town in their costumes in the day time where everybody can see and still get a good haul Halloween treats and be really safe all at the same time,” Allen said.
Allen also said the scarecrow contest, which typically takes place along with the Harvest Festival, is still happening.
To enter the contest visit Mainescape in Blue Hill for a submission form.
