Because Oct. 31 falls on a Monday this year, many members of the community have asked if Halloween trick-or-treating will be moved back to the weekend -- perhaps to Saturday night.
The answer is No.
Both Greeneville Police Chief Terry Cannon and Greene County Sheriff Steve Burns said Wednesday that they are expecting and planning for trick-or-treating in Greeneville and Greene County to take place on Monday night the 31st.
Both recalled that when Halloween has fallen on Sunday, local trick-or-treating has been moved to Saturday in past years.
But when Halloween falls on Monday night, trick-or-treating traditionally is held that night, they said.
Also, it has been announced that "Halloween Happenings," the annual Main Street: Greeneville event that brings thousands of young trick-or-treaters to the downtown area, will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Monday.
