In following the Governor of Virginia’s recommendations for mass gatherings amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Skeleton Festival. While we’re sad to miss one of our favorite days of the year, we’re looking forward to celebrating with you next year and seeing all your creative, funny, and memorable costumes.
While the City of Harrisonburg does not coordinate any city-wide trick-or-treating, we encourage you to chat with your neighbors and see when your neighborhood plans to trick-or-treat. If your family feels comfortable participating, we encourage everyone to wear a mask.
Looking for additional socially-distanced activities this Halloween? Check out VA Momentum’s Trick-or-Treat 3-Miler, as part of their membership-based Forward Series. Everyone is invited to complete 3 miles at their own pace on Saturday, October 31st. On the morning of Halloween, you’ll log onto VA Momentum’s online platform and select whether you want to “trick” or “treat” your three miles depending on how adventurous you’re feeling. Choose treat and you can expect something reliably fun. Choose trick and you may be spooked by what they have in store!
