Wyoming County still planning on holding usual Halloween festivities

PINEVILLE, WV (WOAY) – While Halloween is more than a month away, counties around Southern West Virginia are already looking into the feasibility of their normal festivities.

Some municipalities have already begun to cancel some of their planned events. At this point, Wyoming County will still allow all forms of celebrating Halloween, but will continue to keep an eye on conditions as the date approaches.

“We’re exploring safer ways to make suggestions,’ said Wyoming County Commission President Jason Mullins. “Municipalities always take care of themselves on how they handle it. Halloween is always a big event here in the county for young people. We’d hate to take any more away than what we feel is necessary. I’m sure that we will have some suggestions in the near future on how to handle Halloween events.”

Wyoming County typically celebrates Halloween with trick-or-treating and tailgating, among other events.
