Get the little ones' costumes ready. Despite Hurricane Sandy's wrath, Halloween is happening in Wilmington.
Wilmington Assistant Town Manager Kendra Amaral confirmed to Patch late Tuesday afternoon that Trick Or Treat will go on as planned on Wednesday.
Earlier Tuesday afternoon, Town Manager Jeff Hull said he needed to confirm with the Wilmington Police Department that the roads and sidewalks would be safe for children to walk on.
Crews have been working throughout Tuesday to clean up the damaged trees and wires left behind by Hurricane Sandy.
This is the second straight year Trick Or Treat has been in doubt for weather related reasons, but it's also the second straight year it happened as scheduled.
In 2011, a rare Halloween weekend snowstorm knocked down trees and zapped power from many neighborhoods. For a brief period, rumors popped up that Trick or Treating was canceled, but that news was quickly clarified by the Police Department.
