CHESTER, Vt. (AP) — Officials in the Vermont town of Chester say trick-or-treaters are going to be going door-to-door on Halloween after all.
Deputy Fire Chief Matt Wilson says the town of 3,100 was hit hard by Tropical Storm Irene last year and officials had seen the forecasts that Sandy could cause significant damage to the area. So trick or treating was postponed until Nov. 7.
But Vermont was spared by Sandy.
Wilson says they remembered how long it took to clean up after Irene and they didn’t want kids outside along with emergency and construction equipment.
Wilson says many in town let it be known they wanted to trick-or-treat on Halloween. So they’re getting the word out Halloween will take place in Chester Wednesday after all.
