With cases of COVID-19 still rising, parents and children are wondering how safe it will be to celebrate Halloween this year. In an attempt to have some normalcy in our lives, the City of Albany will host events throughout the city for Halloween.

The City of Albany will work in conjunction with Price Chopper/Market 32, Spectrum News, Trader Joe’s, and Stanton’s Feura Farm & Markets to help host Halloween events throughout the city.

Mayor Kathy Sheehan announced the events and stressed the importance of maintaining the COVID-19 safety protocol. She said, “The City of Albany wants to ensure our residents have a safe opportunity to celebrate Halloween as we continue to stop the spread of COVID-19, and these events are designed to do just that. I encourage our residents to take part in the socially distanced, COVID-19 compliant events. While door-to-door trick-or-treating has not been banned, both Governor Cuomo and the CDC have advised that it is a high-risk activity.”

The events will take place at the following parks:

  • Buckingham Pond at the Berkshire Boulevard entrance
  • Westland Hills Park at the Anthony Street entrance
  • Washington Park at the Sprague Place entrance
  • Hackett Boulevard Greenspace between Cardinal Avenue and South Main Avenue
  • Lower Lincoln Park at the Eagle Street entrance
  • Peyster Island West Erie Street and Providence Street
  • Upper Lincoln Park at the South Swan Street entrance
  • Hackett Park at the North First Street entrance
  • Krank Park at the Seymour Avenue entrance
  • Swinburne Park at the Second Street entrance
  • Arbor Hill Park at the Manning Boulevard entrance

All of the events will be held from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. on Halloween night. Government officials are suggesting COVID-19 safe events for Halloween. If you were looking for something safe to do for Halloween, check out the city-sponsored events throughout the city!
