Due to widespread power outages, Newtown Borough Police are asking residents not to trick-or-treat tonight.
Borough police confirmed that they are asking residents to instead trick-or-treat next Wednesday, Nov. 7. The shift was made to protect the safety of children, officials confirmed.
Newtown Township has not yet weighed in on trick-or-treating, which has created frustration from many parents in that municipality.
Update: Wednesday, 1:15 p.m. -- Newtown Twp is also postponing trick-or-treating.
