PINE BELT, Miss. (WDAM) - Halloween is on its way Saturday, and cities and towns across the Pine Belt are getting ready for this year’s trick-or-treaters to dwell.
Trick-or-treating will be different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and some parts of the area are making efforts to keep families participating in the festivities safe.
Hattiesburg, Waynesboro and Lumberton are highly recommending trick-or-treaters and their families to wear a mask covering for both nose and mouth when out Halloween night.
Trick-or-treat hours have been put in place by cities and towns in the Pine Belt to ensure the public’s safety.
