Trick-or-Treating to Take Place As Scheduled

It looks as though a little storm named Sandy won't keep the ghosts and ghouls from venturing out on Halloween.

Get your bucket of candy ready, Wayland. There are no plans at this time to reschedule Wayland's trick-or-treating festivities.

Town Administrator Fred Turkington confirmed Tuesday afternoon that trick-or-treating is expected to take place as scheduled. This marks the second year in a row that trick-or-treating in Wayland has been put in jeopardy by freak storms. But, just like last year, Wayland isn't one to let a bit of weather get in the way of some good, ol' trick-or-treating.

A couple of things to keep in mind if you do plan to head out Wednesday evening:

- Do not approach downed power lines. There is no way to look at a wire and tell whether it is live. Assume they are live and stay back.

- Take your flashlights and glow sticks along. There will still be debris on the ground so tread carefully.

- Avoid going through people's yards and stick instead to sidewalks and driveways.

If you'd prefer to not go out Wednesday night in Wayland, there are a few local alternatives:

- The Recreation Department and Wayland Children and Parent's Association will hold their annual Halloween Parade at the Wayland Town Building on Thursday, Nov. 1 from 3:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.

- Sudbury has postponed trick-or-treating until Friday, Nov. 2.

- Weston has also postponed the event until Friday, Nov. 2.
