The 2019 Woman’s Club of Logan Pumpkin House featured nearly 1,500 pumpkins on display.

The City of Logan and the towns of Man and Chapmanville will host their annual trick-or-treat festivities on Saturday, Oct. 31.

Each town’s events will be held from 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m. on Halloween night, Oct. 31. Participants are suggested to wear face coverings, keep hand sanitizer handy and use it frequently, and stay in small groups of friends or family to keep large crowds from gathering.

Anyone choosing not to participate is asked to leave their porch light off. When handing out candy, participants are asked to sit outside or keep an eye on their door from the inside to avoid having too many hands touching doors, and even having one or two people sitting near sidewalks to offer treats to trick-or-treaters as they pass is encouraged.

For rural areas of the county, the Logan County Health Department in conjunction with the county’s Sheriff’s Department asks trick-or-treat participants to follow the directors from the state’s COVID-19 guidelines.

The towns of West Logan and Mitchell Heights have chosen not to hold trick-or-treating festivities this year.
