ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After hundreds of concerned parents called the city, Albany is now encouraging people to trick-or-treat on Saturday October 30th instead of Sunday which is Halloween.

The city, police, and recreation department agreed public safety combined with school the next day are perfect reasons to have Halloween earlier.

The school board has also agreed to make the announcement at school to inform students of the change. The city will also see a larger police presence.

"Saturday is better than Sunday because Sunday will sort of block them from going to church and it would be hard to get up Monday morning for school," said guardian, Willie Bryant.

Neighbors in Albany can expect guests around dusk Saturday night October 30th. This is the first year the city can remember holding Halloween activities the day before the actual holiday.
