West Deptford will comply with Gov. Chris Christie’s order and move trick-or-treating to Monday, Nov. 5.
There is no official start time for trick-or-treating, but curfew is set at 8 p.m. The same curfew applies for Sunday, Nov. 4—normally the night before Halloween is Mischief Night, although with the mixed-up schedule this year, it’s unknown how many trees will get TP’d in town.
RiverWinds already decided to can Spookypalooza this year.
Confused reigned throughout the state after Christie issued the order Wednesday afternoon. The wording made it clear that only Oct. 31 trick-or-treating had to be suspended, but governor suggested that all towns fall in line.
Also moving their trick-or-treating hours to Monday are Woodbury (3-8 p.m.), Westville (3-8 p.m.) and Deptford (3-8 p.m.)
The notice from West Deptford reads:
Halloween trick or treating has been postponed to Monday, November 5, 2012 as per Executive Order No. 105 issued by Governor Chris Christie. The Township will fully comply with the Executive Order and move the previously scheduled Saturday, November 3rd date to Monday, November 5th, 2012.
