Halloween is finally here! In case you were unsure about when trick-or-treating is in Woburn, it will be on October 31, rain or shine! There are no specific times scheduled for it, but some parents like to start early when it is still light out. For those interested in trick-or-treating indoors, the Woburn Mall (300 Mishawum Road) will be handing out candy from 5 to 7pm. 

Another important date worth mentioning is Sunday, November 4. On the first Sunday of every November, it's time to "Fall back." Don't forget to turn your clocks back one hour at 2am for Daylight Savings Time! Did you know that Daylight Savings Time started during World War I?
