Laurel Mayor Craig A. Moe has announced that Trick-or-Treating in the City of Laurel will occur on October 31, 2021, from 6:00 – 8:00pm in accordance with all CDC and Prince George’s County Health Department Guidelines.

If you are going to hand out candy, turn on your porchlights for all the little ghouls and goblins!

If you plan to participate this Halloween, the CDC recommends:

  • Wear masks
  • Trick-or-Treat in small groups
  • Sanitize your hands and
  • Parents should inspect treats before the children eat them!

The Laurel Board of Trade has also announced that, in order to keep the children and community safe from the large crowd that usually comes with their Main Street Trick-or-Treat, they have decided to CANCEL the October 28th event.

There will still be a great Pandemic-safe event! The City of Laurel Parks and Recreation Department has planned another Take-Away Treat Spooktacular on Friday, October 29th, from 7:00 – 9:00pm at the Robert J. DiPietro Community Center. Remember, masks and social distancing will be required!

Mayor Moe, the Laurel City Council and the City’s Office of Emergency Management continue to ask you to stay safe and take the shot! Happy Halloween!
