Iberia Parish government confirms it will not cancel Halloween

Iberia Parish

NEW IBERIA, La. (KLFY) — Iberia Parish officials confirmed they will not be canceling Halloween trick-or-treat celebrations this year, despite the COVID-19 virus.

Parish President M. Larry Richard confirmed that since Halloween activities are not expressly prohibited under Phase 3 of Gov. John Bel Edwards COVID-19 reopening mandates, the Iberia Parish Government will allow them.

While the parish will not ban trick-or-treat, municipalities still remain free to impose any time and place restrictions on the celebration to protect children.
