Little old people will be among the trick or treaters around Perry and along Second Street Friday, Oct. 30 from 4-6 p.m. during Spooktacular and from 6-8 p.m. for Beggars' Night.

The Perry City Council has designated Friday, Oct. 30 from 6-8 p.m. as Trick or Treat Night, also called Beggar’s Night.

Residents wishing to participate should turn porch lights on to attract the little spooks and goblins.

Masks are recommended for trick-or-treaters, their guardians and the householders giving away candy. Social distancing recommendations should also be followed.

If you are sick, please do not participate.

Follow safety guidelines set by the county, state and federal health departments, including trick-or-treat guidance from the Iowa Department of Public Health.

Other Halloween activities planned in Perry include the Perry Chamber of Commerce’s Spooktacular Trick-or-Treat walk in downtown Perry on Friday, Oct. 30 from 4-6 p.m.

**Let’s Stay Safe!** All Spooktacular participants are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings and maintain at least six feet between themselves and other groups of trick-or-treaters.
