Postponed or Canceled?: Hurricane Sandy Shifts Halloween Events

Halloween is rescheduled, but what about the Halloween events around West Deptford?

While Oct. 31 is now behind us, trick-or-treating is still days away.  
With Hurricane Sandy delivering a hard blow to much of New Jersey and Gov. Chris Christie signing an executive order, the date of Halloween has moved twice in West Deptford.

As it stands now, Halloween trick-or-treating is scheduled in Township committee members have also passed a resolution to institute a special curfew of 8 p.m. on both Nov. 5 and Nov. 4—just in case anyone decides to postpone mischief night as well.   

Halloween is moved, but what about all the local events that go along went with Halloween? Are they postponed, canceled or have they already passed? 

Here is a list of Halloween events in the region and where they stand after Hurricane Sandy:

Woodbury Public Library
