St. Cloud will be making some changes this Halloween for the safety of the community, along with its businesses and organizations amid the continued COVID-10 pandemic. The overwhelmingly popular St. Cloud Downtown trick-or-treat event will not take this year, but “fear” not, the city’s annual Trail of Terror will evolve into a drive-thru event.

Those individuals still looking for a bit of “scaredom” will be able to experience some Halloween fun while they stay in their vehicles and drive-thru the “scary” trail. Kids will receive candy as they make their way through the trail of terror.

“This was a difficult decision for us, but we are still in Phase 2, and we don’t know whether we’ll be in Phase 3 by Halloween or not,” said Dwight Loeding, of the Downtown Business Group, which sponsors the trick-or-treat event each year.

“An event like that takes a lot of planning, so we needed to make a decision now, based on the information we currently have. We know it will disappoint a lot of people, but we have to make the decision we feel is in the best interest of the health and safety of our community. We look forward to bringing it back in future years.”

The City of St. Cloud and Positively Osceola will be sure to share more details as the horrifically fun event draws nearer!
