Corinth residents had asked for Halloween holiday change

CORINTH — The city of Corinth will observe Halloween on the traditional date of Oct. 31.

Halloween falls on a Monday this year.

Some residents had asked if the city would designate a different day for trick or treating.

City officials tell the Daily Corinthian that they were not inclined to make any changes this Halloween.

Police Chief David Lancaster says he recommended sticking with the actual date.

Last year, with Halloween falling on a Sunday, it was moved to another day. It has only been changed one other time since the late 1990s.
