They say to have caution while trick-or-treating, if you do decide to go out. Many events have already been canceled, such as Kings Island’s Halloween Haunt. Not only have things gotten canceled, but some have been moved online. Many towns will have online costume contests and games live over Zoom. Some states are being very strict with restrictions on Halloween this year, and others not so much.
