Even after the destruction Hurricane Sandy caused across Long Island, some East Meadow parents said that they plan to take their children trick-or-treating and proceed with their Halloween celebrations.
Some residents shared their plans on East Meadow Patch's Facebook page on Wednesday.
"I am still taking my kids and we are meeting up with their friends," Candice O'Connell said. "Halloween is so much fun for kids and I can't imagine trying to explain to mine that we are skipping it this year."
Kim Jensen Nacionales said that it would be nice to get the kids out of the house for a few hours.
"We will be trick-or-treating, but only in the daylight," she said. "No street lights can be dangerous and candy is here for anyone that comes by."
Amanda 'Gigi' Accetta said that she all prepared for the trick-or-treaters adorned in their little costumes.
"Haven't had a trick-or-treater yet, but we have our sign up and pumpkins out, ready with candy," she said.
Some parents said that they believe that it would not be safe to take children out just yet.
"As much as I would like to go trick-or-treating I still believe it is a little too dangerous," Alexie Moskowski said.
Parents said that after dealing with Hurricane Sandy, trick-or-treating will be a great distraction for the children.
"The kids are all excited for this day to come," Laura Vetter said.
