Here are the results of the OPSF Halloween Survey.
It seems like most people in our neighbourhood who answered the survey like to participate in Halloween, but it won’t be as busy a night this year for participation.
Here is a spreadsheet with three tabs showing the results of the survey questions as well as a grouping of the open-ended comments.
207 respondents answered the survey. (There are approximately 900 households in the neighborhood and about 500 people are on the e mail list).
The comments indicate that it is a pretty close split between don’t do it and leave treats out, or handing out via social distancing. Also, many people have ideas about their own parties etc.
So it seems like Halloween will happen in our area for those who want to participate – which will largely be by leaving out treats or social distancing. Likely there will be fewer kids participating this year given the families who report they want to do their own event with a few friends or just their family.Orchard Park Sherwood Forest Halloween Survey final results
