Despite Storm, Trick Or Treating Will Go On As Planned

Despite historic weekend storm, celebration remains.

Contrary to a previous report, Wilmington Patch has confirmed that Wilmington Trick or Treating will go on as originally scheduled.

The town was mentioned in a Lowell Sun list of area locations that had postponed their activities until November 5, but a dispatcher confirmed on Monday morning that after speaking with , there has been no postponement.

Though many Wilmington residents lost power due to heavy snow that brought down trees and limbs throughout town, there were areas that never lost electricity and did not suffer any damage.

Several residents expressed frustration on the Wilmington Patch Facebook page on Sunday night after hearing that Halloween activities had been postponed. But with no school cancellation for Wilmington and no postponement, many readers are now excited to take to the streets with their costumed children.

Also on Monday morning, Wilmington Lt. Joe Desmond confirmed the information as well.

"Halloween has not been cancelled," said Desmond. "It’s at parent’s discretion, but it has not been cancelled."
