Sandy has left thousands without power in the Newtown area. With Halloween just hours away and debris littering many sidewalks, many parents say they are concerned trick-or-treating won't be safe Wednesday?
Should trick-or-treating be rescheduled?
Newtown Township officials told Patch Monday that they don't have jurisdiction over when trick-or-treating is held. Supervisors Chair Mike Gallagher said it would be up to the parents to determine when it's safe for the children to go out.
So will you send your kids out tomorrow? Please comment below.
