Halloween in the City
FROM THE MAYOR
The City of Brighton has been fielding many inquiries regarding the status of Halloween this year. The Brighton Area Fire Authority has already announced the cancellation of their annual Halloween Party, for the first time in over 70 years as I understand. I have not personally heard the status of the annual Tridge or Treat event, but I assume that it too has been cancelled.
The City of Brighton does not endorse or regulate Halloween, other than the tradition of setting the recommended hours of 6pm-8pm, for Trick or Treating within the City.
With all of this in mind, IF you do choose to participate in Halloween from either a Trick or Treating standpoint or by giving out candy to the kids, we ask you to do it in the sagest possible manner. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) have both published their recommendations on staying safe and healthy in this unprecedented time. We urge all of you to review these and implement their rules to the best of your ability.
We urge and ask that you do your best to stay safe and healthy.
Shawn Pipoly, City of Brighton Mayor
