At the height of superstorm Sandy, many kids probably worried Halloween might be canceled. But Delaware cities say trick-or-treating is still on this year.

The News Journal reports that Wilmington, Dover, Delaware City, New Castle City and Newark are all going ahead with Halloween plans on Wednesday night.

Even storm-ravaged Rehoboth Beach says Halloween is still on. Town manager Gregory Ferrese says "you can't make kids cry" this year. So the town will welcome trick-or-treaters as usual.

State police officials say they will be handing out candy at their homes as well.

Wilmington and Middletown will have curfews, though. In Middletown, it's 9pm for kids in Halloween costumes and 10pm for all children. In Wilmington, the curfew is 9pm for children 12 and younger
