Halloween Canceled, Fishbein Says 'Be Creative'

What will you do for Halloween?

Halloween has been postponed in the borough and village, and it still remains unclear when it will be held. In its place, there's a new theme in Ridgewood – be inventive and keep trick-or-treating confined to the home on Monday.

Both towns made the decision to cancel the annual Halloween festivities following Governor Chris Christie's executive order last week.

The governor pushed back trick-or-treat to Monday.

But with the majority of each town still without power and safety hazards throughout, neither Ridgewood or Glen Rock was willing to allow children out on Monday night.

"Since it is too dangerous to attend school, it is too dangerous to trick or treat," Superintendent Dan Fishbein said Sunday. "I ask you to be creative and develop an activity in your home."

Any thoughts on how you'll "be creative" with trick-or-treat? Provide your suggestions in the comments below.

I hear Halloween is taking place at Somerville fields around 2pm.

Sounds good JAFO...can I wear my adult size Brown Bear costume? It should work out perfectly at that field... where the bears are still seen from time to time. Kids and parents should have a great time.

Too bad only a select few heard about it! Thought the town requested kids not be outdoors.

Somerville is a designated charging station and warming center. The fields are clear of debris and were packed all weekend with kids playing. Seems like a perfect solution.
