Officials for the city of Crossville and Cumberland County have agreed to let little ghouls and goblins observe trick-or-treating on Sunday, Oct. 31, the traditional day set aside for beggar's night.
A check with Crossville City Hall referred calls to the police department. Police department officials said they had not received official word to change trick-or-treat night and were proceeding as if the observance will be held on Sunday.
Cumberland County Mayor Kenneth Carey, through a secretary on Monday, said the county would go along with the city's public announcements last week and also observe trick-or-treat night on Oct. 31.
Some confusion has existed because Halloween falls on Sunday, a traditional day of worship for the majority of Christians. Some churches will be holding their own fall harvest celebrations on Saturday nights.
