This year, despite news of continued EEE threats, there has been no word that there will be a change from the tradition of trick or treating during the evening hours of Halloween. If that changes, I will alert readers.

This year, the theme is revisiting some of their best past displays, including “Caribbean pirates and their tales of misfortune; Harry Potter and a few of his magical friends; and a haunted mansion complete with ghosts and singing busts in the graveyard!”
