Well, we still have no power...and we found out last night that our Halloween parades - at school and in town - are cancelled because of the downed trees and power lines in our area....a result of Hurricane Sandy. Town officials are trying to keep the kids' spirits high by organizing an afternoon event at our middle school instead. So, Halloween will be different...but, we'll try to make the most of it.
Local attractions are also coming on board...offering special activities for families like us.
The Connecticut Science Center sent me this press release:
In addition, there will be special Spooktacular Halloween activities from 2PM – 6PM. The activities will include trick or treating, arts & crafts, and pumpkin decorating. Spooktacular Halloween activities are sponsored by Big Y World Class Markets and included FREE with the purchase of General Admission or Membership. Masks for adults are not permitted.
The Connecticut Science Center and UTC Power are offering a complimentary cell phone charging station to Science Center customers on a first come basis. The atrium/lobby level “Science Alley” also has free WIFI available.
