Carmel issues Halloween 2020 guidance in light of COVID-19
Carmel, IN – Halloween and the tradition of trick-or-treating will be permitted to take place on Saturday, October 31 with the suggested hours between 5-8 p.m. in the City of Carmel. To ensure the health and safety of residents, the City of Carmel is issuing the following guidance.
While the City of Carmel does not control how its residents celebrate Halloween or the trick-or-treat tradition that goes along with it, we would like to recommend that parents, children and homeowners take extra precautions this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is recommended that all trick-or-treaters and their chaperones wear a mask if they are not able to maintain safe physical distancing. Please have your mask on when you approach a door. And only approach houses where the porch lights are on, indicating a home that is handing out treats.
Homeowners, if you are sick or are hesitant to have visitors at your home, please keep your porch light off and avoid answering the door during trick or treat hours. If you are welcoming trick or treaters and planning to hand out candy, we recommend you wear your own facemask when you answer your door.
Trick-or-treaters should only consume pre-packaged candy and other treats. Homemade treats should not be handed out or consumed.
Additionally, here are some safety tips from the Carmel Police Department:
Adults should always accompany their children and carry a flashlight at night, staying within their own neighborhood and known homes. Watch for traffic before crossing any street. Avoid costumes that are long, which could cause tripping or costumes that have hard plastic or wood props like swords that could be a hazard. It is also important to inspect candy before allowing children to have it; dispose of any candy that is unwrapped.
Finally, the federal Centers for Disease Control has issued a number of recommendations on ways to celebrate Halloween, pointing out high-risk, low-risk and moderate activities designed to keep everyone safe. You can see those recommendations here.

Weekend 2 of the ‘Brews & Barrels Trail’ to celebrate local craft breweries, wineries
CARMEL, IN – With an impressive and growing list of more than a dozen independent craft breweries, wineries and distilleries, the City of Carmel launched the “Brews & Barrels Trail” to help visitors and residents find unique and crafty takes on their favorite adult beverages. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and crowd restrictions, the Trail is being launched over two weekends – the first one took place in September, the second one is October 24-25. Adults 21 and over are encouraged to visit one or more of the establishments on the trail to learn more about each of them and have a chance at winning prizes.
From Sun King Spirits to Danny Boy Beer Works, Peace Water Winery to Sugar Creek Winery, there are currently 13 establishments in Carmel’s 50 square miles that create craft beers, distilled spirits or their own wines. While there are many more fine pubs and restaurants serving great adult beverages, only those who actually create their own products are included on the Trail. With more establishments likely to come, the Trail may expand in the future.
“We have always celebrated the artistic gifts of our residents and businesses in Carmel, whether that is through events such as our International Arts Festival, Art of Wine or the Carmel Caffeine Trail,” said Nancy Heck, Director of Community Relations and Economic Development. “We have seen the popularity of craft beers, wines and spirits grow tremendously throughout the City, particularly in our entertainment districts. It is natural that we create this new ‘Brews & Barrels Trail’ for visitors to follows as they experience Carmel and all that we have to offer.”
In addition to spreading the launch of the Trail over two weekends, the City of Carmel is taking precautions against the dangers of drinking and driving. The City urges the use of designated drivers whenever possible and is working with Uber on a deal to supplement the cost of a ride home if that becomes necessary. Visit and follow the Carmel Brews & Barrels Facebook page for a special Uber code to use this weekend only!
Participating vendors on the Brews & Barrels Trail include: Deviate Brewing, Danny Boy Beer Works, Sahm’s Alehouse at the Village of West Clay, Upland Brewing Company, Sugar Creek Winery, Bier Brewery North, Peace Water Winery, Sun King Spirits, Fork + Ale House, Union Brewing Company, Books & Brews, Flix Brewhouse and Big Lug on the Prairie.
