Riverside Trick or Treat Times 2020 *
October 31, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDTFree
As of October 27, 2021 there are no published details yet about this year’s trick or treating.
When is trick or treating in Riverside, New Jersey?
In the past Riverside Trick or Treating Times were not predetermined by the town. Parents were expected to use their own judgment and keep in mind the 9 pm curfew when choosing when to trick or treat with their kids. This is the policy as listed on their Facebook page for 2020.
The Township has received several inquiries regarding Halloween and, more specifically, Trick-or-Treating. The Governing Body will neither be endorsing nor prohibiting Halloween activities, but asks that those who chose to participate in any activity follow the recommended guidelines from the State as outlined below:
*In place of placing treats in bags, the candy should be arranged way so that they can be accessed but can’t be touched “multiple times.”
*Those distributing candy should have treats individually packaged so trick-or-treaters can “grab and go” with no shared bowl.
*Trick-or-treaters and those distributing candy need to wear masks.
*Groups should be limited to household members.
*Groups should stay local.
*Trick-or-treaters should limit the number of homes on their route.
*Social distancing is required for groups who are not all from the same household.
*Handing out candy is not recommended.
*Those distributing candy should wash your hands repeatedly.
*Commercially packaged and non-perishable treats are recommended.
