Trick-or-Treating Still On for Wednesday in Borough

East Whiteland and Willistown do not designate time, leave decision to residents.

Despite the disruption of Hurricane Sandy, trick-or-treating will take place as scheduled in Malvern Borough from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Halloween night. 

In Willistown and East Whiteland townships, the decision is left up to parents and other residents.

Malvern Borough: Trick-or-treating runs from 6 to 8 p.m. for children ages 12 and under. Borough Manager Sandy Kelley confirmed the hurricane did not change the time.

Willistown Township: Before Hurricane Sandy hit, Willistown Police said the following by email:

"Parents will have to make that decision based on the conditions.  Obviously, we want everyone to have a safe Halloween and we expect to be extremely busy with the storm so we would hope that parents err on the side of caution."

East Whiteland Township: The township website is not loading as of 6 a.m. Wednesday, likely affected by the storm. But a cached 2009 township newsletter stated the following:

"East Whiteland Township does not designate a Halloween celebration date for children residing in the Township. Although most residents celebrate Halloween on October 31st, the township encourages residents with children to talk to neighbors and use discretion about the date and time for trick-or-treating, and to make sure trick-or-treaters wear costumes that are visible at night and do not impede vision or create a tripping hazard."
