(La Porte, IN) - Trick or treating in the City of La Porte is still a "go" with Halloween just six weeks away. Some cities across the nation like Los Angeles have already cancelled trick or treating and other Halloween related activities and events.
La Porte Mayor Tom Dermody said eyes are being kept on the number of COVID-19 cases presently, and in the future, but the goal remains to allow children to go out in the neighborhoods in pursuit of candy. “Right now, I don’t plan on cancelling trick or treat. We’ll monitor for a while. We still have some time,” he said.
Dermody says that due to the uncertainty created by the virus, he’s been asked several times about the status of trick or treating, a Halloween night tradition in La Porte.
