Trick-or-Treat In Fremont Coming Soon!
Halloween Day – Saturday, October 31st, 2pm – 5pm
Sixty Fremont businesses have signed-up to (very carefully, and socially distant) distribute treats to children, in costume and accompanied by a parent/guardian, all wearing masks. A list of the participating businesses can be seen HERE!
We don’t know how many children will be a part of this COVID-careful Trick-or-Treat, but we expect a lot fewer than usual, just as we have fewer businesses than in previous years. We do hope the people not participating in Trick-or-Treat will try to be patient and keep distant from the children, just doing what children do!
Any businesses that want to participate, and aren’t yet listed, can still sign up (and get a Participating Business poster) at [email protected] or 206-632-3170.
Please note, however, that we are recommending several safety protocols to keep our community safe – and these may not be possible for our strapped and struggling small businesses. Any business interested in participating should check out the recommendations.
