With most of Clinton in the dark the day before Halloween, town officials are working with volunteers to host a "Trunk or Treat" event at one of the schools (to be announced) today, October 31, Halloween.
"We do not want kids out trick or treating," said First Selectman Willie Fritz.
As of last night, 97 percent of Clinton residences and businesses were without power, according to information supplied by CL&P.
Because of that, it is not safe for kids to go house-to-house when they cannot see the streets, walkways and front doors of homes in their own neighborhoods.
Fritz said that representatives were working to hold a "Trunk or Treat" event at one of the town's schools. How it works is parents drive their trick or treaters (in full costume, of course) to the school where the kids receive candy. No one is out in the dark or subject to injury.
The event will take place on Halloween night.
