Is your town rescheduling Halloween? Some in NJ are
The threat of rain on Halloween prompted some New Jersey towns to reschedule their official night for trick-or-treating.
Chief Meteoroloist Dan Zarrow is sounding fairly optimistic about the forecast for Thursday and the rain holding off until later in the evening.
"There will be substantial pockets of dry weather (and wind) from Thursday afternoon through evening. Potentially perfect for trick-or-treating," Zarrow said.
The evening will end with thunderstorms, heavy rain, and fierce winds continuing into the early hours of Friday.
The following towns have announced a change to their scheduled trick or treating times. Check your municipality's or local police department's Facebook page or website to see if there are any changes.
- Hammonton: Moved to 5:30-8 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 30,
- Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst: Moved to 5-7 p.m., Friday, Nov. 1
- Toms River: A decision on the annual Halloween parade will be made by 10:30 a.m. Thursday morning, according to the organizers.
- North Plainfield: Moved to 3-8 p.m., Friday, Nov. 1.
- Summit: Moved indoors on Thursday to its Community Center on 100 Morris Ave.
