Mayor Jones has designated Trick-or-Treating for Saturday, October 31st, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor Jones requests participation in the following guidelines for 2020 Halloween:

  • Keep family/children in a group and do not mix/mingle with other children/families. Maintain a 6-foot distance if waiting to approach a house.
  • Candy should be handed out, not presented in a container for everyone to put their hands in and choose from. Alternatively, participating households could set out individualized plastic or brown paper bags for children to take individually.
  • Masks/face coverings should be worn when approaching houses to accept candy being handed out and should be worn by those handing out candy, or when within 6 feet of those outside your family/social circle.
  • Houses that wish to participate should turn their outdoor lights on.

“I came to Atlantic as the manager of Geis Jewelry. With absolutely no established connections to the community, I found it to be welcoming and nurturing. I cannot imagine calling anywhere else HOME!” -Rich Perry, Atlantic Resident 45 years
