Communities were thinking ahead to Halloween, with some pushing trick-or-treating and related festivities to later in the week and others saying they could go ahead Wednesday.
The latter included Salem, Mass., where the famed witch trials took place in 1680. About 50,000 costumed revelers are expected to show up for a day of events culminating with a fireworks display over Salem Harbor.
The celebration concludes a monthlong ‘‘Haunted Happenings’’ celebration that generates approximately $25 million in economic activity for the city.
The storm caused some power outages and forced some attractions in the city to close temporarily, but Kate Fox, executive director of Destination Salem, the city’s tourism agency, said all were expected to be open Wednesday
‘‘We are lucky, so very lucky,’’ she said.
