POLL: Are You Handing Out Candy This Halloween?

There are few sweeter traditions in Old town than trick-or-treating on Halloween night, but this year’s celebration will undoubtedly be unlike any other.

The pandemic has threatened the health and safety of residents, which has us wondering: Are you going to hand out Halloween candy this year?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention list traditional trick-or treating as a “higher risk” activity, along with having a haunted house. The CDC recommends virtual costume contests, home and pumpkin decorating and maybe having a Halloween-themed movie night instead.

Incidentally, the Carlyle House in Old Town will be handing out candy in individual bags. Check out all that is available in the city for Halloween Night on Visit Alexandria’s website.
