Borough of Bellwood keeps trick or treat tonight

Kaia Claypoole, Staff Writer

Since Halloween is two days away, the Borough of Bellwood is still planning on having trick or treat night tonight, but this year there was a twist on when this event would take place.

Due to heavy rains in the forecast, the borough  made a Facebook poll for citizens to cast a vote on when the night should take place.

This afternoon the borough released this post to on its Facebook page:

“After much consideration, Trick or Treat in Bellwood Borough and Antis Township will remain October 29th from 6-8 p.m.  Unfortunately, we cannot please every one. We did our best to take all of your opinions into account.”

The options were Thursday October 29, Friday October 30, Saturday October 31, and Sunday November 1st. The one problem  with some of the dates was that there were events taking place at those times, like BAYFL playoffs on Saturday.

There are 59 comments on the post saying that it should be scheduled for tonight. Most of the comments say that the kids should be dressed appropriately for the weather because of the rain. Others are saying it would be stupid to have it in the rain. 

Later, the borough released this set of tips for trick or treaters heading out tonight:
