Treat or treat? Saturday or Sunday?
Because Halloween falls on a Sunday this year, the big question isn’t what but when to go trick-or-treating?
The answer is about as mixed as the treats metro Atlanta residents will be serving up.
Halloween fell on Sunday in 1999 and 2004, and in both of those years some municipalities, churches and homeowner associations changed the calendar, marking Oct. 30 the unofficial day of Halloween.
A random check this year indicates more of the same with Canton, Woodstock, and Ball Ground in Cherokee County, all holding festivities on Saturday but leaving the decision up to parents. In Gwinnett and Cobb, officials avoided taking a position altogether.
Cobb Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs, along with Cobb Public Safety, Safe Kids Cobb County and Cobb 4-H, however, will host the 11th annual Fall Festival of Fun 4-7 p.m. Saturday.
