But next year it's on Saturday

Tomorrow we get a chance to experience Oak Park's "new & improved" trick-or-treating hours, which start later and run later into the night. But what about next year? Or 2021? In their haste to approve this important legislation, did the board consider that almost 1/3 of all Halloweens fall on the weekend? 

Regardless of who you are or where you come from, trick-or-treating on weekend Halloweens is glorious: The kids are excited, neighbors are outside enjoying the fun, the daylight hours are warmer, and it is safer for kids during the daytime.
