Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton is urging restaurants and other establishments not to hold Halloween parties and happy hours this year. He also encouraged one-way trick or treating by leaving candy outside homes and using the honor system.
Boughton says there will be police on Deer Hill Avenue on Halloween checking to see if people are residents of the street. Traditionally thousands of trick or treaters turn out in the area, but that's being discouraged this year.
Boughton says if someone doesn't live there, they will be turned away.
