It's here, Happy Halloween. It's October 31, 2012 so it's Halloween and Beggars Night and Trick-or-Treat all rolled into one. Trick-or-Treat is tonight, 6 to 8 in most central Ohio communities.
Some years some central Ohio communities 'Trick-or-Treat' on a night other than Halloween. The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission makes a recommendation about what night central Ohio communities should Trick-or-Treat. The MORPC recommendations are way in advance, years in advance. I could tell you about Trick-or-Treat 2013 but I won't.
All that matters now is, tonight's the night, Happy Halloween 2012
Will Columbus Trick-or-Treat in 2012? has a link to the MORPC site. Yesterday MORPC added this to their site about Halloween 2012:
"The National Weather Service forecast Wednesday’s weather to be cold, high 30s to low 40s, winds from 10 – 25 mph, but no dangerous weather conditions. Unless these conditions worsen, MORPC recommends Trick or Treat proceed as originally scheduled in each Community. If the conditions change, then the Communities should discuss with their Emergency Management Departments and take whatever precautions are necessary to keep residents and property safe and postpone Trick or Treat until the following day, Thursday, November 1. "
MORPC told Columbus, Dublin, Gahanna, Grandview Heights, Hilliard, Lewis Center (Orange Township), New Albany, Powell, Upper Arlington, Westerville, Worthington and the rest of the central Ohio communities, tonight is the night. The show must go one.
Trick-or-Treat 2012 must go on.
Columbus: Happy Halloween 2012
I have seen communities including Worthington and Upper Arlington on their Facebook pages saying Trick-or-Treat is tonight, October 31, 2012. Look at your communities website or Facebook page if you have any doubts... grab another bag of candy bars (big ones) at Kroger or CVS if you ate the bag(s) of Halloween candy when weather forecasters hyped the Halloween Frankenstorm.
The candy bars were at Highball Halloween in Columbus last Saturday.
