Vermont Town Un-Cancels Halloween After ‘High Volume Of Complaints’

CHESTER, Vt. (AP) — Trick-or-treaters in the Vermont town of Chester are going to be going door-to-door on Halloween after all.

Due to what had been the expected damage from Superstorm Sandy, the town had postponed Halloween festivities until Nov. 7.

Many Vermonters were wary after last year’s experiences with Tropical Storm Irene and forecasters had warned of significant damage from Sandy. But Vermont was spared significant damage from Sandy.

So after what the town describes as “a high volume of complaints,” officials changed their mind about postponing Halloween. It will be held Wednesday as usual.

The town apologized for any confusion, but it says severe weather is hard to predict and the safety of children and residents needs to come first.
