Postville will go Trick-Or-Treating on Saturday, not Sunday

Once again Halloween will fall on Sunday this year.

While this may seem like a likelihood of hosting these annual festivities on the final night of October, another Nunatsiavut community has different plans.

We contacted the north coast communities to find out which day they will be celebrating Halloween.

Four of the north coast communities, Rigolet, Makkovik, Hopedale, and Nain will be celebrating Halloween on the scheduled Sunday.

However, the town of Postville will be the only community that will celebrate Halloween on Saturday, October 30.

The Postville Inuit Community Government held their regular business meetings on October 12.

During those meetings they decided that they would celebrate Halloween on October 30, the night before the typical celebrative day.

The last time Halloween fell on a Sunday was in the year 2004.

At that time, people were confused on whether or not children would go trick-or-treating on a Saturday or Sunday.

We learned that in various communities, some children did go trick-or-treating on a Saturday, and some went out on the scheduled Sunday.
