The town of Abingdon, Va 2020 Halloween Activities:
Abingdon, Va families will be permitted to trick-or-treat for Halloween, but the town’s ordinance limits those who can participate.
A news release from the town says the ordinance allows only children 12 years and younger to trick-or-treat, which should be concluded by 10:00 p.m. The town is leaving the tradition to family discretion, as Washington County, Va is currently in the orange zone for COVID-19 cases. There are other Halloween related events scheduled in the town throughout October for those that do not want to trick-or-treat on Halloween night. – Electric 94.9 News Room
