CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Trick or treat night will be celebrated on Halloween in Charles Town, though town council members worried briefly about it possibly interfering with the homecoming game at Jefferson High School.
Oct. 31 falls on a Friday this year, the same night as the annual homecoming celebration at the high school.
Council members talked briefly about moving trick or treat night to another day, but tradition won out.
Trick or treaters can go door to door in search of candy at houses where the porch lights are on from 6 to 8 p.m. Halloween night.
The homecoming game starts at 7:30 p.m.
Town Manager Jane Arnett said the trick or treat activities are intended for children ages 12 and younger.
Town council members Samuel Taylor and Randy Breeden said they believed having trick or treat on the same night as the homecoming game could work to the advantage of younger children because the older children will probably go to the game.
