Halloween Still Saturday, But Hours Changed

Trick-or-treating scheduled for earlier in the day.

Washington Township has announced that trick-or-treating hours, originally scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 10 from 4 to 9 p.m., will now be moved.

The day remains the same, but designated hours have been changed from 1 to 5 p.m., according to an update from the township as of 2 p.m. Thursday.

Trick-or-treating hours in the township were moved three times since Hurricane Sandy took out trees and power lines in the area on Oct. 29, leaving thousands without power.

I think its a great idea. These kids need to get out.
Maria November 08, 2012 at 08:54 PM
agreed!

Would love to know if there are specific neighborhoods that will be participating since I assume most have given up...
deb knobelman November 08, 2012 at 09:28 PM
since not everyone reads this, i bet most people will expect it to be later, and will be out doing the errands they can't do during the week. it's just not halloween if it's not dark out.

I hope it is broadcast on the Honeywell system - as soon as possible.

This is officially beyond ridiculous now. CANCEL IT, PEOPLE! We've had a D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R!

Thank you Washington Township for getting Halloween figured out. Now since that important matter has been resolved any answers as to when we might get some electricity turned on??

oh no, if you cancel it, i will be forced to eat a ton of candy. :-)

There is a big logistical problem with this solution. If halloween is at night, you can tell who is participating based on whether their lights are on. In the day time, it will be much harder to tell whose lights are on, and therefore whether or not they are participating. There are likely to be a lot of wasted trips to the front doors of non-participating houses. Maybe someone can suggest some sort of signal that families should use to indicate their participation? For example, a pumpkin with a lit candle at the end of the driveway, etc.?

Considering this is the last weekend of rec soccer, I suspect a lot of trick or treaters will be dresses as soccer players.

Wow, way to take all the fun out of Halloween. 1-5? Not even going to be dark out. Also, people who work during the week tend to be out doing things..this is really inconvenient. Just cancel it already.

A voice of reason :)
PD73 November 09, 2012 at 02:52 PM
Mine is pretty much gone and I'm not replenishing. Halloween is OVER!
PD73 November 09, 2012 at 02:53 PM
Take them for a bike ride on the Columbia Trail.
deb knobelman November 09, 2012 at 03:21 PM
can't control the electricity, so i guess it makes us feel better to talk about something else :-)
PD73 November 09, 2012 at 03:52 PM
I'm not opening my door. This is RETARDED and I use that word in the most politically correct way possible.

Power will most likely still be out in our neighborhood . This is not a good idea.
