Local communities plan Trick or Treat hours

Wabash City Trick or Treat hours will be on Halloween night, Oct. 31, which is a Monday. Downtown Wabash will host trick or treat hours on Saturday, Oct. 29.

It took several minutes of debate among the members of the Wabash City Council on Tuesday night, Oct. 11, but the City of Wabash now has times set for Trick or Treat.

The debate was needed after Mayor Scott Long broached having Trick or Treat on Saturday, Oct. 29.

“Typically the city has conducted trick-or-treating on Halloween night,” he told the council. “I’ve had some feedback already on this. Downtown Wabash will have trick-or-treating on Saturday, the 29th. The 31st is on a Monday, so if we want to make the teachers and parents mad by getting the kids all jacked up on chocolate and then sending them to school the next morning…”

However, Council member Mitch Figert said that Trick or Treat should be on Halloween night.
