El Paso Named Among Best Cities to Celebrate Halloween

A treat for children and their parents this Halloween, a study by SmartAsset ranks El Paso ranks as the fifth best city in the country for Trick or Treating.

The financial website reviewed and compared 210 cities across 10 metrics, which span four categories, including family friendliness, safety, weather and concentration of candy and costume shops. The study included metrics like internet connection (for virtual gatherings) and recent COVID-19 infection rates to account for the different ways people will celebrate the holiday during the pandemic.

According to the study, El Paso’s low property crime rate, low daily COVID-19 cases and its concentration of costume shops placed it as one of the best in the country and the best in Texas.
