Hamilton, Wenham, Topsfield trick-or-treating set for Saturday

Trick-or-treating in Hamilton, Wenham and Topsfield has been postponed until Saturday.

Town officials in Hamilton and Wenham decided at midday yesterday to change the date.

The decision was made for safety’s sake, as several roads in the two towns are closed because of downed power lines, and hundreds of residents remain without power in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Topsfield decided earlier in the week to postpone its own activities to Saturday night for similar reasons.

Youngsters in Hamilton and Wenham should go trick-or-treating Saturday between 5 and 8 p.m.

Topsfield trick-or-treating will be from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

Hamilton and Wenham residents were alerted to the delay in automated phone messages.

In the messages, Wenham interim police Chief Thomas Perkins and Hamilton police Chief Russell Stevens both said they had been working with National Grid, but were unsure of when power will be fully restored. They urged residents who are without power to “make preparations (to be without power) until midnight” today.

If residents are in need of emergency assistance, including shelter, contact the Hamilton-Wenham emergency center at 978-468-4000.
