10/31/2011 - Halloween Trick-or-Treating Until Saturday, November 5th

WATERBURY – In light of the widespread damage and ongoing safety concerns from Saturday’s storm, Mayor Michael J. Jarjura has decided to postpone Halloween Trick-or-Treating until Saturday, Nov. 5.

Because downed power lines could energize at any time as Connecticut Light & Power works on outages affecting 68 percent of the city, Mayor Jarjura decided to call for the postponement of trick-or-treating in the interests of safety and giving children in neighborhoods that currently are completely dark at the moment an opportunity to enjoy the holiday once power is restored.
