Oct. 31: Halloween on hold

Halloween is on hold as Fairfield rises on Wednesday, Oct. 31.

Fairfield schools, public and private, and colleges remain closed today, with announcements on the rest of the week pending.

Town officials announced late Tuesday that trick-or-treating has been postponed until Wednesday, Nov. 7.

The Chamber of Commerce has canceled Trick or Treat Safety Streets.

United Illuminating reports that more than 70% of homes and businesses remain without power as of 7 a.m. Wednesday. Crews have 425 different locations around town where repairs are needed.

The total of people without power is down from the nearly 98% early Tuesday, and First Selectman Michael Tetreau said during a Tuesday press conference that efforts to repair electrical lines and equipment would begin in earnest Wednesday, after devoting a day to clearing roads.

Some residents were allowed to return to homes south of Old Post Road and in Southport Tuesday evening.

Metro-North service remains suspended, with no indication of when trains might begin to run.

Updates will be posted all day.
