UPDATED: Oct. 30
Readers have been asking if there are plans to change trick-or-treat hours in Avon and Avon Lake with Halloween being in the wake of Hurricane Sandy's remnants.
The answer, so far, is yes.
Avon Lake and Avon have decided to move trick-or-treat to Sunday, Nov. 4 from 5 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Some Northeast Ohio towns, such as Elyria, Olmsted Falls, Mentor and Beachwood are moving trick-or-treating dates due to Hurricane Sandy.
Avon Lake Mayor Greg Zilka's secretary, Elizabeth Gedeon, updated Patch at 3:45 p.m. and said Mayor Greg Zilka had decided to change the hours to ensure the safety of trick-or-treaters.
Avon Mayor Jim Smith said earlier Monday he expected winds to die down by Wednesday evening. He moved trick or treating Tuesday morning.
Earlier in the week Smith said that trick-or-treating is not a city-sponsored function and noted that years ago, he changed trick-or-treating so it wouldn't conflict with a football game and it wasn't well received, so it has traditionally remained as Oct. 31.
That changed on Tuesday.
Looking for an option? Calvary Baptist Church in Avon Lake is hosting "Trick or Trunk" indoors from 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. (see details).
