Halloween activities, including Trunk-or-Treats, abound in West Columbia

COVID numbers are declining in West Columbia just in time for Halloween.

The Centers for Disease Control said Halloween 2021 should be more normal after last year’s COVID-impacted event.
Kids who want to, should get outdoors and go trick-or-treating this Halloween, according to the CDC.

While the CDC is pro-trick-or-treat, crowd sizes should be limited. Crowded Halloween parties are not a good idea in the COVID era, according to the CDC. But trick-or-treating in small groups is preferable, said  Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the CDC.

In addition to the opportunity to trick-or-treat, door-to-door, there are other Halloween options. Below is a list of Trunk-or-Treat locations in West Columbia:

Airport High School and Brookland-Cayce High School are inviting the community to kick off Halloween at their family-friendly, drive-thru events for trick-or-treating. Admission is free to both events.
Both events are set for Thursday, October 28, so district families can participate at their nearest high school. Free candy will be handed out, and costumes are encouraged.

Airport High School’s drive-thru Trick or Treat Lane is set for 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. on the school campus, 1315 Boston Ave., West Columbia. The event is coordinated by the Student Council, with clubs and community members handing out candy.
