Along with the many places to volunteer or get help these days, Arlington neighbors are spreading cheer in many social distancing appropriate ways. It’s still warm enough to take a long walk, and look for bits of cheer all around you.

Are You Spooking Up For Halloween!

Are you still decorating for Halloween and providing treats - somehow - to give away safely? Let families know you’ll still be providing frights for Halloween night by signing up for our Halloween map below! Please remember to provide treats and do your Halloween walking responsibly, and Wear A Mask - not just a costume one!

Sign Up For Halloween Decorating

You can sign up to let people know you’re decorating and handing out treats for Halloween - enter your spooky household name and address here!

Note: our skeletons are weary from the zombies constantly asking them if they can catch COVID (zombies are forgetful) so it may take them a little while to update the map - probably only once per night - so please be patient!
