Beggars Night – Pumpkin Patrol
October 29 @ 6:00 pm-8:00 pmFree
PLEASE NOTE: UA is among numerous Franklin County communities that are supportive of continuing with this year’s Beggars Night activities, while advising residents to make plans that take into consideration health and safety precautions and are mindful of appropriate social distancing. Our Police Division will have officers making their usual patrols through neighborhoods and assisting children if they become lost or scared but they will not pass out candy this year. Check here for additional details and safety recommendations.
Beggars Night is a community-wide activity, with the recommended event date established by the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) on behalf of Central Ohio communities. It is not organized by the City of Upper Arlington.
Parents are advised to use discretion when deciding if it is appropriate for their children to be out trick-or-treating based on inclement weather conditions.

Submissions to our Community Calendar
As a service to the community, the City hosts an online Community Calendar. We invite you to submit details of upcoming special events that are open to and promote government interests of the community at-large, as determined by the City of Upper Arlington.
To submit a calendar listing, please use this online form. Submissions should include a photograph (no posters or logos) with a exact size of 1920 pixels wide x 1275 pixels high. We recommend that you submit items at least three months in advance, since we may include some community events in the City’s print and e-newsletters as space allows.
The City will not post routine items such as programs, club meetings or classes. The inclusion of a special event does not represent an endorsement from the City. The City reserves complete control of any event postings on the Community Calendar and has final approval authority over them. Community Calendar postings are not intended to, and do not, create a public or designated forum for private speech of any kind. The City reserves its right to refuse a submission
