Schenectady Mayor: Halloween Ends At 8
While there may not be an official 'last call' for trick-or-treaters on Wednesday night in the city of Schenectady, they did recently announce their proposed Halloween 'hours of operation'. In fact, Mayor Gary McCcarthy has told residents when they need to turn off their porch lights.
While other Capital Region cities may have an idea of when it's safe or not to be out on the streets for Halloween, I haven't seen them implement specific hours. But the city of Schenectady, and it's mayor have different plans.
According to CBS 6 News, the city of Schenectady and it's mayor have announced specific hours where residents are encouraged to have their Halloween fun and when to wrap it up. The official hours of operation according to the story are from 2pm - 8pm.
In fact, according to the CBS 6, Mayor McCarthy is asking it's residents to is to "stop handing out goodies and turn off their porch lights at 8 p.m."
