KINGSLAND, Ga. — RELATED: LIST 🎃 Halloween events across Northeast Florida
With Halloween quickly approaching, one question that has been asked over and over is whether families will participate in trick-or-treating this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Many First Coast families have weighed in on our Facebook page, saying they do not feel safe going door-to-door.
But just because Halloween may look a lot different in 2020, that does not mean it has to be canceled! There are many events scheduled to take place across the First Coast that will allow the young and young at heart to celebrate the spooky season while remaining safely socially distanced.
