Halloween During the Pandemic
Provincetown really comes alive during the celebration of the dead. But this year, well, you’re going to want to choose a costume with a mask covering your mouth and nose.
A large portion of Commercial Street, MacMillan Pier, and a small portion of Bradford Street are still “mandatory mask zones” even in costume, according to the town’s website.
Indoor entertainment will be prohibited in Provincetown, though this is stricter than the state guidelines.
As for those private parties, outdoor gatherings in private back yards will remain at a maximum of 50 people — socially distanced — for all communities.
The limit for indoor gatherings remains at a maximum of 25 people.
Also, bars are still closed.
P’town Rec’s Spook-tac-u-tour
This year the Provincetown Recreation Dept. will present its first-ever spooky but family friendly interactive tour of Provincetown. From Oct. 26 to Nov. 1, QR codes, a type of bar code that can be read by an app on a smartphone, will be placed on town buildings and other locations throughout town. As they are scanned on a cellular device, the QR codes will provide images and historical background of that specific location, provided by the Building Provincetown website, according to the town’s website. At the end of each stop along the way, there will be a clue leading you to the next location on the Spook-tac-u-tour.
QR codes will be accessible to pedestrians, and also to those taking the tour by car. For those who do not have access to a cellular device, a hard copy of the Spook-tac-u-tour can be provided upon request at town hall, or email [email protected] or [email protected].
A Sweet Halloween
Provincetown and Truro are both offering Halloween treats for children. Forget actually walking around on Halloween; the candy will be brought to you. On Oct. 29, community members living in Truro or Provincetown can have a “contactless treat bag” delivered by fire and police.
All you need to do is provide a treat bucket, or an area clearly marked where you would like your treats dropped off, the town website says. Dress up in costumes and wave to the first responders while they deliver.
Sign up online by 5 p.m. on Oct. 27:
*Provincetown community members sign up here: forms.gle/kGCmrnbQucKb7iPi8
*Truro community members sign up here: trurorec.com/
