Trick-or-Treating to Be Held Saturday in Bloomingdale

Kinnelon trick-or-treating to be held Monday.

Bloomingdale residents will be able to trick-or-treat Saturday after the borough established that to be the new day for Halloween festivities.

Trick-or-treating was canceled Wednesday because several trees, poles and wires were still on the ground following Tropical Storm Sandy.

Bloomingdale police Chief Joe Borell said he had driven around and assessed the borough Thursday and deemed it safe enough for trick-or-treating on Saturday. He also said the Nightmare on Bailey Ave. event would be held.

According to Bloomingdale Councilman Ray Yazdi, an organizer of the event, the haunted house will open on Bailey Avenue between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. for all seniors and small children who want to walk through without scary characters. The haunted house will reopen at 6:30 p.m. "to all brave souls."

There will also be a flashlight egg haunt at 7 p.m. at 42 Bailey Ave.

The Borough of Kinnelon will be having trick-or-treating on Monday night, as recommended by Gov. Chris Christie's order.

Haunted house will open at 2:00 pm to all seniors and any small children that like to walk through and see the decorations (until 4:00 PM), then re-open at 6:30 with scary characters and surprises around every corner. There's also a flashlight 'egg haunt' event at 7:00 pm, for all smaller kids, at 42 Bailey Ave.

What about Butler?

My question also. I thought the governor said Monday?

Not sure how we are able to do this when the governor stated statewide Halloween is on Monday November 5th. Are we above the mandate?

Having just received a phone call about shelter and warming stations to Bloomingdale residents that still do not have power I think it is inappropriate to hold this event.
