Groveport Interim Police Chief Casey Adams said that trick-or-treat on Oct. 31 went well this year in Groveport in spite of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. He noted the busiest areas in town with trick-or-treaters seemed to be Tallman Street and the Newport subdivision and that Main and Front streets had lighter crowds than usual.
“I’d say overall we saw about one third of the usual amount of trick-or-treaters in town compared to what we have had in previous years,” said Adams.
