Trick or Treating Moved to Friday 11/1

Please see the following message from Mayor Patton:

We have decided to move the City of Edwardsville and Village of Glen Carbon residential trick or treating night from Wednesday 10/30 to Friday 11/1. The weather forecast for Wednesday shows a 80% chance of rain and very low temperatures. We believe the public safety and public welfare risks are significant enough to change the date to Friday.

This will not impact our annual Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce Parade. It is scheduled to start at 6:30pm sharp on 10/31. In the case of inclement weather, Chamber and city officials will decide between 5 – 5:30pm on 10/31 if cancellation is necessary. Due to state road closure permits there will be no make-up date.

Please share this information with your friends and neighbors.

Thank you, Hal Patton – Mayor of Edwardsville
