Croydon, Tullytown to Hold Trick or Treat on Friday [Updated]
Halloween trick-or-treating was postponed last week due to Hurricane Sandy.
Wednesday, 4:19 p.m.:
Bristol Township issued the following statement:
Today, November 7, 2012 stands as the requested postponed day. The change was never 'official'. Municipalities made a 'request' for their residents to postpone trick or treating to November 7, 2012. Who knew we would have another N'oreaster? We requested the week postponement to make sure we had enough time to make the neighborhoods safe for the trick or treaters. If not for the severity of Sandy we would not have made the request and the decision on October 31 would have been an individual one for each family. Use your best judgement at this point. Please be safe.

For most towns in Lower Bucks County, Halloween trick-or-treating was postponed until Wednesday, Nov. 7 due to Hurricane Sandy.
It became clear over the past few days that the impending rain, snow and wind event set to start in the afternoon hours could hamper Wednesday trick-or-treating.
Bristol Township officials suggested that “individual neighborhoods attempt to coordinate trick-or-treating keeping the weather in mind.”
Tullytown Borough officials asked parents to move costumed candy collecting to Friday. Officials urged parents to use their best judgement.
The Croydon Acres Civic Association asking residents in that section of Bristol Township to participate in trick-or-treating Friday evening starting at 5 p.m.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Middletown still displaying signs stating that Halloween would be celebrated on Wednesday.
