As today's Nor'easter begins to move into the area, many residents had once again began to question whether or not East Haven's Halloween trick-or-treating celebration — which has already been postponed once last week due to Hurricane Sandy — would be still move on as planned tonight, or be postponed again to a later date this week due to the storm.
East Haven Patch followed up Wednesday morning with the East Haven Mayor's Office, looking to confirm if the date would be moved or not.
The following is the response Patch received, which is the reply Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr has been sending to residents in reply to emails asking about the holiday's status.
It appears in full below:
"The three towns postponed Trick or Treating because of life and death problems (power lines on street and hurricane). We did this last week. We cannot keep postponing a holiday because of weather. Last year we had a snow storm and it was not canceled. Parents have to use their own judgment for normal weather conditions with their families. Please listen to the forecast and take precautions. Hope you understand, and thanks."
