Halloween trick-or-treat hours have not--repeat not--been
changed in either the Tri-Towns or in unincorporated Porter County.
Trick-or-treat will proceed today as scheduled--despite the
rain--from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Chesterton Police Chief Dave Cincoski, Porter Police Chief Jamie Spannier,
and Burns Harbor Police Chief Mike Heckman all told the Chesterton
Tribune this morning that there has been no change in today’s
trick-or-treat schedule. Sgt. Larry LaFlower of the Porter County Sheriff’s
Police told the Tribune the same thing.
Meanwhile, both the CPD and the PCSP were reporting a flood of phone calls
this morning from folks trying to verify that trick-or-treat had been
postponed to Friday, apparently after seeing a story in the on-line edition
of The Times.
The Trib, for that matter, was also receiving calls.
At the root of the confusion may be the fact that Crown Point has
postponed trick-or-treat to Friday, as The Times was reporting.
But in that story’s confusing column layout, it would appear that The
Times was also reporting that trick-or-treat has been postponed in
Duneland as well.
In fact, trick-or-treat will be tonight as previously scheduled
