is there trick or treating in lower merion tonight or not?
Eric Campbell (Editor) October 31, 2012 at 03:50 PM
There's been no announcement by any government agency to say there *isn't*, so absent that, you can assume trick-or-treating is a go. And if someone does announce something, we'll report it here right away.

Lower Merion Township has recommended trick-or-treating be moved to Sunday: http://tinyurl.com/abzrgde
