Trick-or-Treating times for Marietta, Parkersburg, and the Mid-Ohio Valley

Tis the season for spooky sounds, creepy costumes, and way more candy than any child ever truly needs. Looking for trick-or-treat times for your neighborhood? We’ve rounded up this year’s schedule across the Mid-Ohio Valley. While Halloween plans are still scheduled to take place in many local communities, cities are coordinating with local health departments and continue to monitor the public health situation and therefore, plans may change. We will continue to update this list as new information is made available.

Families participating in community trick-or-treat are encouraged to wear face masks, maintain social distance, and use and carry hand sanitizer. Children who are at a greater COVID-19 risk as encouraged to stay home. It is recommended that all candy be sanitized at home before being eaten.

Let us know if we’ve missed a spot, and we will add it to the list. Happy Halloween-ing!
