Halloween Trick-or-Treating is Still on in Stoughton
As of now, there have been no announcements from the town to discourage Halloween trick-or-treating, which traditionally takes place the evening of Oct. 31.
Good news for Stoughton trick-or-treaters: Halloween is still on in Stoughton.
With Sandy's timing, there were questions as to how the storm would impact Halloween; as of now, heading into the Oct. 31 holiday, it appears as if it has not.
Stoughton Police Executive Officer Robert Devine said the town has not issued any announcements discouraging trick-or-treating at this time.
According to the hourly weather forecast on the Weather Channel website, the temperature the evening of Oct. 31 should be in the low to mid 50s, with a slight chance of showers during trick-or-treating hours.
Most of the town (about 95 percent) has power after Monday's storm.
Devine reminded parents to stay with their kids when trick-or-treating; to stay in well-lit areas; to carry lights; to stay away from any downed wires that might still be down, or downed tree branches and limbs; and to make sure you can breathe when wearing masks.
He also cautioned drivers to slow down and be alert as trick-or-treaters are out and about.
