Reminder: Trunk-or-Treat Monday
Officials are warning against traditional trick-or-treating due to safety concerns
Mahwah's Halloween celebration is Monday.
Town Hall is hosting a trunk-or-treat celebration Monday, Nov. 5, at 4:30 p.m. All cars that want to take part need to be there by 4:15 p.m., and the event runs until 6.
The event was originally re-scheduled for Saturday, but was pushed back again to Monday due to the continued power outages in Mahwah. The new date is in line with Gov. Chris Christie’s executive order last week canceling Halloween and urging municipalities to hold it on Monday.
Township officials advised limiting Halloween this year to the trunk-or-treat, as downed wires throughout Mahwah make traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating too dangerous.
This is the second year in a row that Halloween in Mahwah has been impacted by severe weather events. Last year, the October snowstorm stopped some residents from attending the parade, and prompted others to organize a trunk-or-treat.
