We’re still under the (admittedly naive) impression that Halloween is several weeks away. Perhaps it is because we haven’t even begun to pin down our costumes, perhaps it’s because we haven’t actually carved our pumpkins yet, or perhaps it’s because we are too busy attending fall festivals to actually consider the impending holiday. It’s likely a mix of all of the above but regardless, Halloween is next weekend, Saturday October 31, and we know our readers (and the ShoreBread kiddos) are eager for details on their impending evening(s) full of trick-or-treating (a.k.a. candy, candy, and more candy). As promised, we are presenting you with this year’s list of trick-or-treat times on Delmarva:
