YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Instead of door-to-door Trick or Treat, the City of Youngstown has decided to hold a drive-thru “Trunk or Treat” amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some local communities decided to cancel Trick or Treat this year or hold socially-distanced alternatives amid health concerns. Others are continuing the tradition as usual.

Youngstown’s drive-thru event will be from 4 to 7 p.m. October 31 at the Covelli Centre.

Vehicles should enter through the main entrance on E. Front Street and drive through the directed path. Those attending, including those in vehicles, must wear face coverings.

Vendors who want to participate and provided wrapped and sealed treats should register online. Candy donations can also be dropped off at the Parks and Recreation Department, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. The department is located at 26 S. Phelps Street in Youngstown.
