Lexington officials have given trick-or-treaters the go-ahead Wednesday, but are recommending parents use caution to keep their kids away from any remaining downed trees and wires.
About 2,000 people in Lexington remained without power Wednesday morning in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, according to NStar’s website.
But Lexington re-opened schools Wednesday, and the town issued an advisory that afternoon trick-or-treating in Lexington Center will occur as planned. The town also advised parents and children out for Halloween tonight to use caution and stay away from all downed wires.
Last year after a nor’easter caused fallen trees and utility wires around town, Lexington police asked parents to keep their kids indoors on Halloween because of the debris.
