Chamber Cancels Town Square Trick or Treat

by Jackson Hole Radio News

The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce has officially called off the traditional Trick-or-Treat on the Town Square, originally scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 31st. Director of Events, Britney Magleby commented “It’s always a difficult decision to cancel events that our community has come to expect and love, but it’s much more important that we do our part in keeping our community safe,” The decision comes after recent announcements from St. John’s and Public Health that Jackson has returned to “red” stages of the pandemic and strong recommendations that everyone do their part to limit the spread of the disease. The ever-popular costume contest will keep tradition and competition alive. However, the Chamber will encourage costume photo submissions via social media and will pick winners on Halloween Day from them. The competition will be more encompassing, and the prizes more sought-after. Those interested in competing can follow “jhchamber” on Instagram for more information to come.
