UPDATE! Admiral District businesses reverse course: Trick or Treating is back Oct 29
UPDATE Oct 13
The organizers of the Admiral District Halloween regretfully cancelled this year’s event earlier this month. The decision was made out of caution since no guidelines had been given from the CDC, and Covid trends were unclear. While some of the businesses in the Admiral District were in favor of hosting the event, others were not. In lack of a consensus, the event was cancelled.
This week we received new information. On October 12th, Dr. Fauci made the announcement that Halloween events should be safe as long as they are held outdoors. Given this new information, we are proud to bring this fun family event back to our community for 2021!
We are very excited to announce that the Admiral District Halloween event will be held on Friday October 29th from 3pm to 6pm! Event posters will be distributed to Admiral District Merchants this week. Kids and their parents can look for the sign in the window of participating businesses and Trick or Treat!

Admiral District businesses regret to announce that the annual trick or treating event will once again be cancelled for 2021. With the rise of the delta variant the decision has been made to err on the side of caution.
Our businesses are concerned that many children are unvaccinated and the activity of going door to door for treats would pose an unreasonable risk to the health of our community.
Currently the vaccine is only available to children over 12. We look forward to hosting the event again in 2022.
