WARREN, NJ -  October 31 was Halloween this year. The day that children and adults dress up, pretend, dream, and, of course, collect all sorts of treats. Halloween was extra special this year because it was the first Halloween that fell on a Saturday in years. 

On October 29, 2011, a freakish Halloween ice storm leveled trees, snapped branches and cut power.  On October 29, 2012, Superstorm Sandy struck, and parts of the township were without power for weeks. Trees and wires were down everywhere.  Halloween was officially canceled.  Schools were closed, parades were canceled and costumes and decorations were put away.
 
Not so this year. The day was mild, and in schools and neighborhoods all over town, Halloween returned. Excited  children as well as parents, teachers, staff and even animals, put on their costumes and got in the spirit.

Zombies, superheroes, and creepers were out late into the night. Nobody wanted it to end this year. No homework, no chores--just fun, for the children and the adults.
