A Massachusetts representative from Pembroke wants to change the day the state celebrates Halloween to the last Saturday in October.
According to State House News Service, Arthur Boyle said a constant weekend celebration would allow authorities to plan for it better.
He said the bill would be better for safety concerns and that parents wouldn’t have to deal with as many people driving home from work.
Dem. Rep. Josh Cutler represents Pembroke and filed the bill the Wednesday before Halloween, but said he isn’t in complete support of it, saying he believes in holiday traditions.
Chelsea Police Chief Brian Kyes told State House News Service that there is also trouble-making to take into consideration if celebrations are held on a Saturday night.
