The Albion Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the 2020 Costume Contest and Trunk or Treat on the Albion square on Saturday, Oct. 31.

The costume contest will take place virtually, with prizes will be awarded for Best Group; Best Overall in each of the following brackets (0-3 years; 4-8 years; 9-12 years and 13 years and above) and Best Overall. More information to follow; please watch the Facebook event post and Albion Chamber of Commerce Facebook page for more information. The Trunk or Treat will start at 4 p.m. A one-way traffic flow pattern will be set-up, utilizing the outside of the east, south and west sides of the square. Please watch for and follow all traffic flow patterns.

Businesses and individuals are invited and encouraged to set up a table/trunk/tailgate at the “Trunk or Treat.” If you would like to set up, you are encouraged to arrive at the square between 2:30 and 3 p.m. Booths will be on the outside of the square only, and will be placed several (6+) feet apart. It is all encouraged that treats be passed out and children not allowed to choose their own or reach into a community bowl. The Illinois Department of Public Health also suggests the option of placing candy spaced out on a table or other surface so a child can select one.

If weather does not allow the events to happen, events will be held on Sunday, Nov. 1.
