Isabella and Dylan live in Leominster, which has postponed trick-or-treat until Saturday.

Not all kids in Massachusetts trick-or-treated Wednesday night.

Hurricane Sandy caused some cities and towns to postpone Halloween until this weekend.

As Gregg McBride, chairman of the Norwell Board of Selectmen, told The Boston Globe, "Given the predictions of significant loss of power, wires down, and trees and limbs down, the board did not think it prudent to be having children trick-or-treating."

Here is a list of cities and towns where kids will trick-or-treat this weekend, along with times provided by city and town officials:

Ashby: Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m.
Fitchburg: Saturday from 5:30 to 7:30
Holyoke: Saturday (no set time)
Leominster: Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m.
Methuen: Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m.
Norwell: Saturday (no set time)
North Andover: Saturday 5 to 7 p.m.
Sudbury: Friday
