Statement Regarding Halloween in Mayfair

Hurricane Sandy may have Toppled some Trees & Disrupted some Power, but won't take the Neighborhood's Trick-or-Treating.

The Mayfair Civic Association held discussions on Tuesday, October 30th, and concluded that Sandy's impact on the Neighborhood will not have any affect on the status of Halloween.

"We understand the concerns of neighborhood parents regarding the safety of the children, however to coordinate spreading the word about delaying the Halloween trick-or-treating to those who either don't use or don't have access to Social Media platforms, is a difficult task on such short notice. Parents should exercise their own judgement regarding the safety of certain streets when it comes to their children trick or treating."

"Halloween is on." *

Mayfair Civic Association spoke with PECO and expects all power to be restored by Wednesday Morning, at the latest, and cited no safety hazards in town that would prevent children from trick-or-treating. Most people that lost power in Mayfair were restored early Tuesday afternoon. Avoid areas where tree collapses have occurred.

All power should be restored, and tree damage has been minimal and isolated. We are saying it’s still on. We don’t see why we wouldn’t have Trick-or-Treating.

* If Government Officials issue a directive/schedule change, we will update this post. Parents are free to schedule their own events.

Recommendations for Costumes:
• Costumes should be bright-colored or have reflective tape to highlight them.
• As much of the costume as possible, should be labeled flame-retardant.
• The eye holes on masks should be large enough to see through clearly.
• Keep costumes short and form-fitting from the knee down, to avoid getting caught under feet and causing slipping or falling.
• Children should wear sturdy shoes and temperature appropriate clothing underneath their costumes. Most of already missed a couple days of school due to "Sandra".

Trick-or-Treating:
• Children should be accompanied by an adult. It's best to take smaller children out earlier in the evening.
• If older children are going out unaccompanied, go over the ground rules first! They must travel in a group, and an adult should know which neighborhoods they will be in.
• Carry a flash light or glow stick to increase visibility to drivers.
• Only trick-or-treat in familiar areas that are well lit. Only approach houses where the outside lights are on as a signal of welcome.

Pedestrian Safety:
• Cross streets at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
• Always walk, don't run, when crossing streets.
• Make eye contact with drivers and watch for cars that are turning or backing up.

Tips for Motorists:
• Be especially alert. Remember that popular trick-or-treating hours are during the typical rush-hour period.
• Drive more slowly and anticipate heavier than usual pedestrian traffic.
• Be sure to drive with your full headlights on so you can spot children from greater distances.
• Tap the horn to let Pedestrians know you are there.

Happy Halloween !!!
