The Wilmington Insider For October 31, 2018

WILMINGTON, MA — Below is a round-up of what’s going on in Wilmington on Wednesday, October 31, 2018:

Happening Today:

Weather: Mostly sunny, with a high near 57. Calm wind becoming south 5 to 8 mph in the afternoon.

Trick Or Treating: Wilmington has no “official” trick or treating hours.

“We tell families that trick or treating starts when it gets dark, with the expectation that most families with young children will conclude that a couple of hours is enough time to be out gathering treats,” says Town Manager Jeff Hull. “To my knowledge, we have not had a problem with unofficial approach.”

On Halloween, the sun is scheduled to set in Wilmington at 5:38pm.
