Swampscott moves trick or treating to Saturday

SWAMPSCOTT — Swampscott kids are going to have to wait a few more days before they can celebrate Halloween this year.

Trick or treating in Swampscott has been rescheduled to Saturday evening, according to a press release from Police Chief Ronald Madigan. The decision was made due to predicted reports of foul weather conditions Thursday night, he said.

There is a high wind watch in effect from Thursday evening into Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service. In portions of eastern and southeastern Massachusetts, there are predictions of possible wind gusts up to 50 and 60 miles per hour.

The weather service said impacts could include damaging winds with the power to down trees and powerlines and cause difficulty with traveling, especially with “high profile vehicles.” They recommend residents fasten loose objects or shelter objects in a safe location prior to the onset of winds.

Swampscott children and their parents can show off their costumes and collect candy from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2.
