Halloween is not a City sanctioned event, but rather a nationally recognized holiday. Other than announcing the suggested hours for trick or treating in Essexville which is 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm, the City has no further involvement. The City has no legal authority or basis to cancel Halloween or restrict the free movement of its residents.

All residents who participate, however, should adhere to any public health recommendations from the Bay County Health Department. Be safe and use common sense such as: wear masks as necessary; social distance if not in the same household; any household with a positive COVID case should not participate; any individuals with symptoms should not participate; and any other guidance from public health officials. Please be smart and be safe!
