Henderson officials recommend postponing Trick or Treating

Posted: Updated:

The Henderson Police Department is recommending that children go Trick or Treating on Friday, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. due to Thursday's threat of severe weather.

Henderson Mayor Steve Austin also released the following statement:

"The City of Henderson, nor I as the Mayor, has statutory authority to change the calendar (except in the case of a declared emergency). However, due to community encouragement, I suggest that neighborhood Trick or Treating be moved to Friday, November 1, between the hours of 3 and 6 p.m. Households that will accept Trick or Treaters on Friday should leave their porch light on as a sign of welcome and parents should look for those lights before sending their children to the door.

It is my understanding that the Downtown Henderson Partnership, due to event conflicts, must have their trick or treating today, weather permitting. And, First Methodist Church will hold "indoor" trick or treating as planned."
