Halloween observances split in Dyer County

Saturday, October 9, 2010

This year, Halloween festivities in Dyer County will be split between Saturday, Oct. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 31.

When Halloween - or All Hallows' Eve - falls on a Sunday, many municipalities choose to celebrate by scheduling trick-or-treating on the Saturday evening prior to the holiday.

The city of Dyersburg will observe Halloween on Sunday, Oct. 31, with trick-or-treating held at City Hall between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., on Friday, Oct. 29.

The city of Newbern will observe Halloween on Saturday evening, Oct. 30. The town of Halls will celebrate Halloween on Saturday evening, as well.

Trimble officials were unreachable on Friday, and an official at the Dyer County Courthouse said they had no announcement on when the holiday would be observed.

This disharmony is yet another indication of the fractured society in which we all live. How sad that the children cannot come together and pull their tricks and treats on just one night that we can all support.
