Acadia Parish Police Jury President Chance Henry confirmed that Halloween trick-or-treat activities will not be cancelled this year.

The announcement comes in regard to Governor John Bel Edwards’ recent Phase 3 reopening mandates. Halloween activities are not prohibited under current Phase 3 guidelines. Therefore, Acadia Parish will allow the tradition to be carried out as normal.

Although trick-or-treating is still allowed within the parish, municipalities remain free to impose both time and place restrictions to assure a safe Halloween night.

Crowley already has cancelled trick-or-treating. Other cities in the parish plan to make decisions in the next week or so.
