City Waiting to See if Sandy Will Affect Halloween

It's still too early to tell how the storm with affect Halloween festivities, according to a city official.

Though Sandy might be headed our way, right now the city is taking a wait and see approach when it comes to the impact the storm could have on Salem's Halloween festivities.

The City's Special Events Coordinator Ellen Talkowsky said late Thursday night there's "no exact forecast" or any cancellations at this moment.

City officials will probably meet Monday to evaluate the situation, according to Talkowsky.

Additionally, any cancellations made would occur on a venue by venue basis. Outdoor venues at risk could include various stages, the Carnival and activities on the Common, but it's still too early to tell.

For the moment, the main focus, according to Talkowsky, is a successful and safe weekend, which is expected to be a hit with lots of visitors to the Witch City.
