NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - The Halloween Walk, a community staple for several decades, has been cancelled this year as our district sees an increase in Covid-19 cases. The decision was a difficult one for the North Platte Downtown Association, who is doing their best to navigate hosting events while addressing public safety concerns.

“This was a very difficult decision but one that had to be made because we didn’t feel like we could keep the kids properly socially distanced. As much as we would love to carry on the tradition of the Halloween Walk, we have to think about keeping our kids safe,” said association treasurer Shae Caldwell.

With the rise in Covid cases, some events in our community might look different this year.

“Things definitely will look different this holiday season, but we are still going to have events, we’re just going to modify them so they’ll look a little different from what you’re used to. Starting of course with the Halloween Walk and then with the Veteran’s Day Parade, that will also be cancelled this year. Instead, we’ve decided as a downtown to take an hour of remembrance where we will remember our veterans during that time,” added Caldwell.

We will have more event updates for you as we approach the December Holidays.
