Saturday, October 31

If you plan to participate, please read the following guidelines:

  • Make each child its own sealed bag with treats (just wrapped treats please)
  • Practice robust hand hygiene while filling the bags.
  • You should have a table on your front porch/lawn with the bags spread apart.
  • You may wish to sit outside your front door (away from the table) to ensure that the children take one bag each – please instruct them not to touch any other bags. (It would be great if you dress up too)!
  • You should have a table on your front porch/lawn with the bags spread apart.
  • Groups could be family or ‘bubble’ groups and no more than 10 in each group.
  • Each group should be supervised by an adult.
  • Register to have your house added to the Trick-or-Treat map
The final map with all the spooktacular
locations that will be giving treats during the Halloween evening on Saturday, October 31 (starting at 6:30 or sunset ) will be shared a couple of days before the event.
Thank you to the community volunteers who have taken active roles in facilitating this event.

Important note about safety:

We want to keep this event fun and safe for everyone! Please follow all Keeping KAUST Safe guidelines regarding gathering, including practicing social distancing and wearing face coverings.

Please also use extra caution on the roads on the evening of October 31. Both trick-or-treaters and road users need to be extra mindful in the dark.
