County, Princeton trick-or-treat moved to Saturday, Nov. 3

PRINCETON — The Mercer County Commission rescheduled trick-or-treat for areas outside of a municipality in Mercer County to Saturday, Nov. 3 from 6-8 p.m.

Commissioner Mike Vinciguerra added that the city of Princeton would also reschedule trick-or-treat within the city's limits for the same time.

"We talked to [Princeton Mayor Patricia "Pat" Wilson] yesterday," Vinciguerra said. "She said that [the city of Princeton] will go along with us."

Vinciguerra explained how the commission rescheduled trick-or-treat to Saturday. Tuesday and Wednesday were eliminated because West Virginia was under a state of emergency and didn't want to expose children to the harsh weather conditions brought by Hurricane Sandy.

Also, Vinciguerra said that the Commission didn't want to schedule trick-or-treat on Friday to avoid conflicting with the last week of regular season high school football.

Saturday also provided the best weather with lows falling to 43 degrees as opposed to Friday when the lows reached 34 degrees.
