Missouri Gov. Mike Parson and first lady Teresa Parson have rescheduled the third annual Parson Family Fall Festival. It will be held jointly with the annual trick-or-treating event at the Governor's Mansion from 1-3 p.m. Oct. 31.

The outdoor event will feature several vendors, bluegrass musical entertainment, and children's activities including a straw bale maze and photo booth, according to a news release from the governor's office.

Children age 12 and under will be able to safely receive candy in a contactless and socially distant manner. For those with food allergies, an alternative option will be provided.

The event is free and open to the public, and no registration is required.

Children are invited to wear their favorite costumes and will be offered a grab bag. Masks will be available for attendees, and social distancing guidelines will be followed.

The festival was to have been held Oct. 3 but was postponed because the Parsons tested positive for the coronavirus. The Parsons have fully recovered from COVID-19, according to the governor's office.
