  1. I love Halloween and I enjoy taking my little ones trick or treating but I think this year 2020 we should all CANCEL all Halloween public events. Lets help stop the virus please.
    We can still do something fun with our kids at home. Going out is not going to be an option this year for my kids.

  2. Please cancel. Let the parents handle privately and creatively at home. Let’s protect the children and help stop the spread. This is not an essential activity.

  3. Trick or Treating should be cancelled. I am not opening my door to any body this year. This decision really is troublesome since I enjoy handing out candy to all the children. Mostly they are respectful and are watched by their parents. I am taking care of my 97 year old mother in law in my house and will not risk her health for any reason.
    I hope that the parents of the children that egged my house one Halloween will guide their children better.

  4. As a long standing Santa Maria resident, I vote to follow CDC guidelines & keep our families & neighbors safe. Allowing trick or treating on Santa Maria Street would be a COVID health risk as well as unnecessary exposure during these hard economic times.

  5. As a long standing Santa Maria resident, I vote to follow CDC guidelines & keep our families & neighbors safe. Allowing trick or treating on Danta Maria Street would be a COVID health risk as well as unnecessary exposure during these hard economic times.

    2020 has been a year of many changes. Please let us follow all Co-Vid 19 guidelines by not opening Santa Maria to crowds on Halloween. In fact, I feel Trick or Treating should not take place this year for the safety of all. Stay Safe Stay Home 😷

  7. I agree! Many of the trick-or-treaters are not from our neighborhood, and since this year Halloween is on a Saturday night, the older “kids” may cause problems. We have been helping to pay for the police at Halloween for over 20 years.

    Do not need to worry about possible vandalism, as well as health issues this year.

    We will not be participating.

  8. For the safety of our families, loved ones, and our neighbors: PLEASE CANCEL TREAT OR TREATING ON SANTA MARIA STREET. I live on Santa Maria Street. If Halloween moves forward on my street, I will not be participating as I have done in years past.
