Gallery: Storm Doesn't Scare Away Halloween

Trick-or-treaters hit the streets in Farmingville despite downed trees, government warnings.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, government officials and authorities warned families to postpone trick-or-treating on Halloween night because of the danger of additional downed lines or falling limbs. 

That concern didn't scare away all the little ghouls and goblins and cops and Yo Gabba Gabba characters that hit the streets of Farmingville yesterday evening, right in the shadow of Town Hall. 

"Three days of keeping the kids inside was enough for us," said one parent as he followed his little one past Mount Evans Court, where a massive oak tree lay uprooted across the front yard of someone's home. Parents were in agreement that cancelling Halloween for their kids would have made a bad situation worse.

Patch followed these trick-or-treaters along Mt. McKinley and Mt. Rainier Avenues. If you have photos of your little ones doing likewise throughout the rest of Sachem, send them to Matthew.mcgevna@patch.com.
