Trick-or-Treat at the Times rescheduled for today

PRINCETON — Old Man Winter’s early visit to Four Seasons Country delayed Trick-or-Treat until today.

As the aptly named “Frankenstorm” blew into the region Monday, the managers at the Princeton Times and Bluefield Daily Telegraph opted to postpone the annual Halloween extravaganza from Oct. 30 until Friday, Nov. 2.

“We really hoped the storm would pass, and we could host Trick-or-Treat at the Times as we had planned, on Tuesday,” Times Editor and General Manager Tammie Toler said. “But, when the winds and snow blew into Princeton and Mercer County, we decided it might not be safe for all of our little visitors to get out. We’d rather reschedule the celebration than take a chance on someone trying to brave the storm at its worst.”

Trick-or-Treat at the Times will still include a harvest photo shoot by award-winning photographer Eric DiNovo, free treats and child-identification fingerprinting by West Virginia State Police Sgt. M.K. Summers.

“All of the familiar favorites will be back this year; they’ll just be here a  little later than usual,” Toler said.

Visitors are invited to take part in a costume contest. The winners in a grand prize category and age divisions will take home savings bonds and bragging rights. All participants will be featured in a special photo section that will now publish inside the Princeton Times on Nov. 9 and online at

Attendance and participation in the Trick-or-Treat at the Times are free, but prints and CDs from the photo shoot may be purchased. Photo prints will be $5 for the first print and $2 for each additional print, plus sales tax.

Photo CDs, which come with reprint rights, sell for $10, plus sales tax.
