Halloween is Saturday, for Abington

Due to the storm, the Abington Board of Commissioners is moving trick-or-treating back to Saturday.


The Abington Board of Commissioners has designated Saturday, Nov. 3, as trick-or-treat night in Abington, according to Board of Commissioners President Carol DiJoseph.

DiJoseph said in an email that the commissioners made it Saturday to avoid problems in the street, as too many people are still without power.

“Many people have inquired about designating a certain night for trick or treating,” DiJoseph said in an email. “This is certainly a special time for our kids and we don't want them to miss the excitement. However, with power lines down, street lights out, and debris here and there, tomorrow night may be a bit risky. Therefore Abington Township is designating Saturday night November 3rd as Trick or Treat Night.

DiJoseph recommended that trick-or-treaters hit the streets between 3 and 6 p.m.

“While not everyone is going to get this message, hopefully the majority of kids will,” she continued.
