Halloween falls on Monday this year and weather conditions promise to be favorable with early evening temperatures in the 50s and partly cloudy skies for the night’s festivities. Town trick-or-treat times are as follows: Church Hill, 6 to 8 p.m. (children 12 and under) Centreville, 6 to 8 p.m. Millington, 6 to 8 p.m. Queen Anne, 5:30 to 7 p.m. Queenstown, 6 to 8 p.m. Sudlersville, 6 to 8 p.m. Some children will be collecting food for the backpack food program.
As usual, the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office will increase patrols this night, and detectives working with Parole and Probation will be checking residences of registered sex offenders. Motorists are reminded to keep an eye out for small, costumed pedestrians.
