[Editor's note: The Chamber of Commerce event "Trick or Treat on Safety Street" has been canceled. Below refers to general trick-or-treating around town in honor of the holiday Halloween.]
Update, Nov. 6
From the latest CodeRed alert from First Selectman Michael Tetreau:
Due to the Nor'easter forecast to come Wednesday, the town is asking everyone to celebrate Halloween on Saturday, Nov. 10.
"Let's give our crews a break and give them time to clean up both from Hurricane Sandy and the upcoming Nor'easter," Tetreau said in the CodeRed alert.
Though the Chamber of Commerce's Trick-or-Treat on Safety Street has been cancelled, town employees and the police and fire departments invite everyone to participate in a "Trunk or Treat" event on Saturday from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. in the north parking lot of the Fairfield Center train station.
"All are welcome," Tetreau said.

Halloween in Fairfield has been postponed to Wednesday, Nov. 7.
A decision regarding Trick-or-Treat on Safety Street, originally scheduled for Halloween afternoon, is expected to come by Wednesday morning.
Prior to the decision, some Fairfield residents supported for postponing the holiday -- though preferred to see it postponed to the weekend.
"I say reschedule all school festivities for Friday and Halloween for Saturday," Paula Morón Slesh said on the Fairfield Patch Facebook page.
The Department of Public Works and United Illuminating will be taking care of 272 cases of trees entangled with wires Wednesday, so holding trick-or-treating during the day -- another option mentioned -- was out of the question.
Jill Kovacs said she'll be ready for kids on Halloween on whatever the day the town picks.
