Stonington residents to celebrate Halloween on Friday


The town of Stonington will be celebrating Halloween more than two weeks after the scheduled holiday.

Residents are being encouraged by town officials to take their children trick-or-treating on Friday.

First Selectman Ed Haberek is asking residents and businesses to participate in the holiday tradition. And households that want to participate in the trick-or-treating are asked to leave their lights on.

Trick-or-treaters can stop by town hall until 4 p.m. and Department of Human Services until 4:30 p.m., according to town officials.

"As you know, to provide a safe, disruption free and enjoyable environment for our children, we encouraged children to "trick or treat" on this alternative date," Haberek said in a statement Wednesday. "With no power & lights, distressed families and difficult unsafe roads; we felt Nov. 16th would be an enjoyable alternative date."
