This Saturday is Halloween, and Trick-or-Treating will be from 4 to 7 p.m. We should have clear, cool weather for that evening, and while it won’t be a typical Halloween, we’re grateful that this can happen for the kids.

I remind everyone to follow all recommended safety guidelines for those handing out treats, including avoiding direct contact with visitors, setting up a station with individually bagged treats, wearing a mask, and washing hands before handling treats.

Also, this Friday night we’ll be presenting a movie at Excursion Park, “The Nightmare before Christmas,” at dusk, not long after 6 p.m. If it rains on Friday, the movie will be held on Saturday (Halloween night).

In other event news, the Christmas Extravaganza normally held on Thanksgiving weekend has been canceled. We’ve considered the magnitude of people that show up at this event, and believe it’s in everyone’s best interests not to hold this. We’ve discussed this with the Chamber of Commerce, and they’re in agreement.

We will have a parade down Landis Avenue, from 29th to 93rd Street, of course with Santa Claus, which will be held the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 27, at 7 p.m.

Smile … You’re in Sea Isle!
