Mayor Craig A. Moe is looking forward to working with the Laurel Board of Trade to bring the spooky spirit of the Annual Main Street Trick or Treat to life on October 24, 2019, from 6:00pm – 8:00pm!

To ensure all of our little Trick or Treaters stay safe on Main Street, Mayor Moe has the Laurel Police Department and Public Works lined up for the evening to close off the following parts of Main Street to vehicular traffic from 6pm to 8pm:

  • Main Street will be closed in its entirety from 4th Street to Route 1;
  • Eastbound Main Street will be closed from 5th Street to Route 1; and
  • Tolson and Fetty Alleys will remain open to allow access for businesses and residents in that area of Main Street.

Remember, an adult must accompany all children and no pets will be allowed. To learn more about the Trick or Treat event on Main Street, please call the Laurel Board of Trade at 301-483-0838.

HALLOWEEN: And while we have your attention, Mayor Moe has announced that Trick or Treat will be held on Thursday, October 31, 2019, in the City of Laurel, from 6:00 – 8:00pm.

Mayor Moe and Laurel Police Chief Hamill encourage parents to follow these tips for a safe and fun-filled Halloween experience:

  • Be aware of vehicular traffic and follow traffic laws;
  • Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or have glow sticks as part of their costume;
  • When choosing a costume, use light-colored material and stay away from billowing or long trailing fabric.
  • If you are making your own costume, choose material that won't easily ignite if it comes into contact with heat or flame;
  • If your child is wearing a mask, make sure the eye holes are large enough so they can see out;
  • Report any suspicious activity; and
  • ALWALYS examine your children’s candy before they eat it.

You are also encouraged to leave a porch light on if you wish to receive trick or treaters! Mayor Moe wishes all of the City’s little ghosts and goblins a ghoulishly good time this Halloween!
