No, it's not a trick.
The Borough of Butler has now decided to host trick-or-treating on Saturday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The decision to have trick-or-treating was made Friday afternoon after the Halloween festivities were slated to be canceled entirely.
Butler Borough Clerk Mary O'Keefe said residents should still practice caution, as many trees and wires were still down in roads throughout the borough.
Butler Fire Chief Jim Niell said the firehouse is tentatively planning to host its annual Halloween party on Monday evening.
Bloomingdale will also host trick-or-treating on Saturday after Bloomingdale police Chief Joe Borell drive through the borough and determined the streets to be safe enough for children to go out this weekend. Nightmare on Bailey Ave. will also be held Saturday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. for seniors and young children. The haunted house will reopen at 6:30 p.m. "to all brave souls," according to organizer Ray Yazdi, and there will also be a flashlight egg haunt at 7 p.m. at 42 Bailey Ave.
Kinnelon will be hosting trick-or-treating on Monday night.
