The Township is receiving inquiries from residents asking if Halloween will take place this year in light of COVID-19.

Plymouth Township has never formally observed or ‘regulated’ Halloween, other than it falls nationally on the 31st. We suggest trick-or-treating during the hours of 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and that houses participating in trick or treating should have porch lights on.

The Township has no legal authority or basis to cancel Halloween or restrict the free movement of its residents.

All residents who choose to participate in trick or treating should adhere to any public health recommendations from the Wayne County Health Department, Centers for Disease Control, State of Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and any relevant executive orders from the Governor’s office that may exist at that time.
