Some Towns Have Rescheduled Trick or Treating for Saturday, November 5

WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS (WGGB) — After the Great October Snowstorm that cancelled trick or treating this past Monday due to safety reasons, some towns have decided to reschedule it for this weekend.

Chicopee, Greenfield, and Northampton will have a delayed Halloween celebration with trick or treating at dusk on Saturday.

The Bondsville Fire Department will be hosting a ‘Trunk or Treat’ event from 4PM until 6PM on Saturday. Everyone is invited!  The event will be held at the Fire Department Headquarters on Main St. in Bondsville.  In the tradition of ‘trunk or treat’, if you are interested in distributing Halloween candy from the trunk of your car to local costumed participants, please arrive at the fire station no later than 3:30PM.  If you would like more information about the event, or if you would like to support the event by making a cash donation, please call the Bondsville Fire Department at 413-283-9036.

Westfield will have trick-or-treating on Monday night, November 7th.

Other cities and towns we contacted today that have definitely decided not to reschedule this year are:  East Longmeadow, Springfield, Ware and West Springfield.

Decisions are still being made in other towns as to whether any events will be held in the upcoming weeks.

    I wish Holyoke had chosen to do the same. Some of the fortunate individuals with power took their children out trick or treating on dark streets with downed wires and tree limbs, branches everywhere. Did they remain on the sidewalks? NO, because the couldn’t!! So, instead they walked in the streets with their children and treated the event as a great big block party. Many of the children were being driven and the cars were double parked blocking already severely compromised roadways! I know Halloween is important to children especially after this horrendous storm. Children are NOT expected to make wise choices, BUT, their parents are!!!!!
