Halloween is on in Groton

The Department of Emergency Management is leaving it up to parents to decide whether to take their children out trick-or-treating.

Groton has decided to leave it up to parents whether to take their children out trick-or-treating tonight, despite many houses without power and some streets with downed trees and power lines.

Jeff Williams, deputy director of the Department of Emergency Management, said he doesn't think you can really cancel Halloween, though streets with safety hazards such as downed power lines would be closed to trick-or-treaters.

Some other towns have rescheduled trick-or-treating, including Stonington, which set the date for Nov. 16. Towns in the greater New Haven area have postponed trick-or-treating until Nov. 7.

What do you think? Will you take your kids out trick-or-treating? Can you suggest some safe neighborhoods in Groton - ones without downed wires or trees?

So I have to ask...did anyone even buy candy? I mean, when most people were at Wal-Mart last week, and Stop and Shop stocking up on water, how many people actually bought halloween candy? Will trick-or-treating be a waste of time? Be safe everyone - with all the wet leaves on the grass, it's an accident waiting to happen.

I don't recommend Pequot Ave Mystic between circle and Edgecomb St. Trees down on wires and blocked off. Take kids to Mystic Aquarium free admission 5:30-7 and Trick or Treating with the fish!

Just spoke with the Town Manager's office and they said Trick or Treating is postponed-- date yet to be determined.

What about Mystic Halloween Parade? On or off?

Some towns have already decided to wait until Monday the 5th. I think this should be mutual with the other towns. Most of the debris, and wires, and dangerous stuff should be cleared out and power will hopefully be on by then. Best of all no school the next day!
