Halloween Activities & Safety Tips

AKWESASNE — With Halloween only a few days away, The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Emergency Operations Center is reminding everyone about this year's annual Trunk-or-Treat event being held at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, October 30th. Conducted by the Akwesasne Coalition for Community Empowerment, this year’s event is a safe option being provided as an alternative to the normal trick-or-treating experience.

For those who will be participating in the Trunk-or-Treat event, please keep in mind the following procedures to make the event safe and enjoyable:

  • Event is limited to community members only,
  • Please enter Margaret Terrance Memorial Way from McGee Road,
  • Participants must stay in their vehicles for the duration of the event, and
  • Goodie bags will be distributed at the last table as you exit event onto Route 37.

Traditional trick-or-treating is discouraged due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases surrounding our community. Community members are encouraged to participate in the Trunk-or-Treat event, as it is one way to mitigate and prevent the spread of the coronavirus within Akwesasne—particularly, among our kids.

For those who choose to trick-or-treat, we ask that you please practice the following protective measures from the U.S. Center for Disease Control to make Halloween safe:

  • Avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters,
  • Give out treats outdoors, if possible,
  • Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take,
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer frequently,
  • Stay at least 6-feet apart from others,
  • Wear a cloth mask, and
  • Trick-or-Treat within your family or social bubbles.

Halloween is always a fun time and following the above safety measures will ensure that it will continue to be enjoyable and safe for everyone.

For any guidance or questions, please contact the SRMT Emergency Operations Center at (518) 320-0019.
