Updated: October 20, 2020

Cape Elizabeth Community Services will be holding a Halloween event on October 30 for preschool through grade 4 children. For more information visit Cape Elizabeth Community Services.

During the October 14, 2020 Town Council meeting, Town Manager Matt Sturgis provided the Town Council with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on how to safely celebrate Halloween in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.  As a result of receiving inquiries from various neighborhood associations, Sturgis emphasized that the information is provided as a helpful guideline to the community.  Enforcing the guidelines will not be possible.

Activities are arranged in the order of high to low risk.  By sharing the information now, the hope is that families will have time to plan creative Halloween activities while still promoting safety and social distancing.  “For the record, Halloween is not canceled,” Sturgis assured.
