Because Halloween falls on a Sunday this year, some communities are observing it on Saturday, the 30th, so it won't disrupt family activities and church services that occur on Sunday. The communities observing Halloween on the 30th include Henry County and the city of Martinsville, Alleghany County and the city of Covington, as well as Pittsylvania, Giles, Pulaski and Carroll Counties. Bedford and Appomattox counties say they will decide whether to make any changes at their next board of supervisors meetings.
