Town Notice: Trick-or-Treating on Halloween

Published

on

The Town Manager’s Office has received several inquiries regarding trick-or-treating on Halloween.

The Town of Front Royal is NOT canceling Halloween and leaving it at the discretion of parents and homeowners whether they choose to participate.

However, the Town is not sponsoring Hometown Halloween on Main Street as it has done in years past. It’s our understanding many merchants on Main Street are planning to participate in Halloween, again participation is at the discretion of parents and merchants.

The Front Royal Police Department will be publishing safety recommendations early next week which we would appreciate all participants in Trick-or-Treating to follow.

Front Royal Clean-Up Underway

Published

on

Thousands of tourists are expected to visit Front Royal for fall leaf watching. The Town is asking all residents and community groups to help keep Front Royal clean during this time and throughout the year.

“Fall tourism for Front Royal is economically one of the top points of the year,” said Mayor Holloway, “This is a good time to be sure our Town is a place that tourists will want to revisit throughout the year. We have the natural beauty of the mountains, family attractions, shopping and fine food and drink venues. When tourists and residents experience our Town, we want it to be picture perfect.”

There are several areas of concern that Front Royal is asking residents to help Town employees identify. These include:

  • Properties with high grass and weeds (over 10”),
  • Properties with trash, debris or litter that is not stored in a covered, watertight container, and
  • Inoperable or unlicensed vehicles or trailers.

Addressing these concerns are essential in promoting health, safety, and the well-being of the Town for residents and tourists.



To report concerns to the Department of Planning and Zoning, please call, email, or use the link below:

Front Royal is also reminding residents and community groups to consider adopting a road, park, school or community, where they pick up litter and monitor their locations. This program is designed for residents to help Front Royal become proactive in the fight against litter. Town signs are erected to identify areas and adoptees. For more information, click here.
