Halloween 2020

The Town of Abita Springs is excited to celebrate a healthy and safe Halloween! To protect the members of our community we will not sponsor a large gathering this year, but encourage our residents to participate in trick or treating throughout the neighborhoods and trunk or treating across from Town Hall. We ask that all safe Halloween celebrations take place outdoors and that you practice social distancing guidelines. If you do not plan to hand out candy, turn off your outdoor lights to limit unnecessary interactions.
