Trick-or-treat date is up for debate

September 07, 2005

BOONSBORO - The Boonsboro Town Council is trying to decide when town children will be saying "trick or treat."

The Town Council discussed Tuesday whether to hold the event Thursday, Oct. 27, or on Halloween, Oct. 31.

The town typically schedules trick-or-treating on the Thursday closest to Halloween, Mayor Charles F. "Skip" Kauffman said.

This year, however, Halloween falls on a Monday, and students have the following day off from school for a professional day, he said.

The Town Council plans to consult with other towns to find out when those municipalities will hold the event before it makes a decision.

"This is a major, major decision," Kauffman joked.
