As Hatboro and Horsham residents continue clearing away tree branches, awaiting the restoration of power and a sense of normalcy following Hurricane Sandy's battering, an annual tradition, for some, is hanging in the balance.
The question for parents is what happens with trick-or-treating in Hatboro and Horsham?
Neither Hatboro nor Horsham designates a day or time for the annual Halloween tradition of trick-or-treating, according Horsham Township and Hatboro officials.
While most people take their kids out on the evening of Oct. 31, it is not a date set by either municipality, officials told Patch.
Just before noon on Wednesday, Horsham officials shared word that trick-or-treating had been postponed until Nov. 3.
"(Safety) suggestions remain the same: Use a flashlight, watch where you are walking, be careful crossing the street," Walker said.
In Hatboro, kids got an early taste of trick-or-treating on Oct. 27 - before Hurricane Sandy struck - during the borough's annual Halloween Stroll. Hundreds of costumed characters came out for candy generously given by participating borough merchants.
Hatboro and Horsham residents were debating on Patch's Facebook page whether trick-or-treating should be rescheduled. What do you think?
