UPDATE: Barrington trick-or-treating will be Monday

Following an official proclamation by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie moving Halloween trick-or-treating to Monday in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the borough appears ready to make has made the move as well.

When asked whether Barrington would follow the governor’s plan — or would stick with its original plan of postponing trick-or-treating to Saturday — Mayor Robert Klaus wrote in an email: “It’s an Executive Order #105, this supersedes any local proclamation.”

Christie’s executive order states:

“Celebrations of Halloween scheduled for October 31,2012 in all parts of New Jersey shall be held on Monday,November 5, 2012.”

At this point (5 p.m. Wednesday), the borough website still says trick-or-treating will take place Saturday. Barrington Bulletin will update if and when this changes.


UPDATE: Borough Clerk Terry Shannon has confirmed the mayor’s earlier statement and notes Barrington trick-or-treating will be from 3 to 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5.
