The historic October snowstorm that forced the cancellation of school for thousands of schoolchildren throughout the tri-state and cut off power to hundreds of thousands has also made several towns change their Halloween plans.
In Connecticut, officials in Fairfield, Avon, Bristol, Hartford, Coventry and Danbury have suggested postponing Halloween until later in the week or canceled it all together.
And least one town in New Jersey, Chester in Morris County, postponed trick-or-treating until Friday.
"With so many wires down ... the sidewalks will not be safe for pedestrians," Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton told The Hartford Courant.
Instead, Boughton asked parents to bring their kids to the Danbury Fair Mall to trick-or-treat.
The storm dumped nearly 2 feet of snow in places throughout the tri-state.
