City of Manchester’s Trick or Treating date change

October 30th, 2019 · Children, City Library, Events, News

Chief Carlo Capano is announcing a date and time change for the upcoming Halloween Trick-or-Treating event. The Chief has been closely monitoring the weather, and due to the near certainty that there will be heavy rains throughout tonight and into tomorrow, he has chosen to postpone Trick-or-Treating until Sunday, November 3rd from 2pm-4pm. The Manchester Police Department’s utmost concern is public safety and with the rain there is the potential for flooding and downed leaves and debris. The Chief is concerned about the hazards that could pose for children and their families as they try to navigate the city streets. Please be mindful of the children on the streets Sunday during these afternoon hours. We wish everyone a happy and safe Halloween. #ManchesterNHPolice
