In this week's column, we tackle a reader's question on Halloween Trick or Treating.
This will be the first year that we will be taking our daughter out trick-or-treating (in Woburn), and I wanted to know if you could tell me if Woburn would re-schedule trick-or-treating due to inclement weather? I was also wondering if Woburn had set hours for trick-or treating.
Well, we checked in with both Woburn Police Chief Robert Ferullo and Mayor Scott Galvin. Both had the same, simple answer:
Trick or treating for kids is Oct. 31. And if it rains? It rains. Same for snow! So get ready for whatever Mother Nature might hit us with, trick or treating will be held no matter what on Wednesday.
As for a set, scheduled time, there is none in Woburn. However, many parents like to go early while it's still light out.
If you'd rather stay indoors, the Woburn Mall is offering Trick or Treating from 5 to 7 p.m.
