10/30/2019 - Halloween Trick-or-Treating

Halloween Trick-or-Treating

First Selectman Ken Kellogg and members of the Emergency Management Team have discussed the weather forecast for Halloween and the effect it may have on trick-or-treating.  The Team also discussed requests the Town has received to cancel or change trick-or-treating night, and the practical and logistical issues involved in making such a change.

Neighborhood trick-or-treating on Halloween night is a long-standing tradition, not a Town-organized event.   It is best to leave the decision up to parents regarding their family’s plans.  Some neighborhoods may choose to change the night within their own neighborhood, or organize indoor celebrations.  If you do choose to go out, we recommend that children be closely supervised, and consider the following safety tips:

  • Dress for the weather - use rain ponchos and/or umbrellas.
  • Use a flashlight with fresh batteries.
  • Consider using glow sticks, reflective clothing, or adding reflective tape to costumes.
  • While walking near the roadway, be careful to make sure that masks don’t limit your child’s view.

As always, we ask drivers to be very cautious and slow down.

We wish everyone a safe and Happy Halloween.
