Halloween 2012 in Morgantown

Sandy’s Tricks aren’t a Treat for Morgantown Kids

Trick or Treating events have been canceled or rescheduled due to Sandy.

MORGANTOWN – Halloween seems to be on a short hiatus this year as West Virginia struggles under the weight of storm Sandy.

WVU’s Trunk or Treat Event has been canceled. It hopes to reschedule.

BOPARC’s Downtown Trick or Treat event has been canceled. Rescheduling may occur.

Neighborhood Trick or Treating is postponed from Wednesday, October 31 to All Saint’s Day, November 1, 2012, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

City Hall is celebrating, too. Employees have a Healthy Halloween Luncheon planned for the noon hour. We’ll share pictures of our scariest, prettiest, or just plain wackiest employees!

    When you’re out trick or treating, be sure to adhere to safe practices.

  • Make sure your child is wearing at least a little reflective material so they can be seen crossing streets.
  • Check your child’s candy before letting them dig in. Look for signs of tampering or foreign objects.
  • Make sure your child is dressed warmly (because the forecast has snow!), but don’t let the layers or masks prohibit your child from seeing or walking safely.
  • Ensure that your child’s costume and accessories are flame resistant. Lit jack-o-lanterns and decorations make for an awesome display, but be cautious that your magician’s cape doesn’t float too close.
  • Know where your child is at all times. Keeping an eye on them can keep them safe, and prevent any mischief.
  • For the adults celebrating: nothing can replace a Designated Driver – or a life lost due to drunk driving.

  • For those who are giving out candy, we suggest you turn on your porch light so the ghouls can tell which houses are participating. Likewise, if you are not participating, please ensure that your light is off so you don’t get curious spooks.

    We at City Hall hope you have a safe and enjoyable Halloween!
