The pair, Emma Warner and Savannah Whited, asked city council members and Mayor Laubaugh, if the day for Trick-or-Treating could be changed from Oct. 31 each year to the Saturday before Halloween.
Their reasons: so their teachers could take their children trick-or-treating, because it would be on a weekend instead of a school night, and many children have some type of a practice on a week night.
The girls then presented Mayor Laubaugh with a petition requesting that change with more than 100 signatures on it.
The mayor explained the Trick-or-Treat date can’t be changed this year, but she promised to take a citywide survey on the topic and see if the majority is interested in changing it.
For 2022, the City of Wadsworth will have Trick-or-Treat on Oct. 31 (a Monday) from 6-8 p.m. City residents wishing to participate should leave their porch light on during those hours.
