Five Things You Need to Know Today: October 31

Halloween will go on tonight, although it may be a little wet. That and more items of interest in today's Five Things.

1. Temperatures between 64ºF and 44ºF are in the Brookline weather forecast from the National Weather Service. They are also calling for a 40 percent chance of showers during the day, and a 20 percent chance in the evening. Which means, if you're trick-or-treating tonight, pack an umbrella.

2. Trick-or-treating is expected to go on despite damage from Hurricane Sandy in some parts of town. The DPW hopes to have the hard-hit Payson and Meadowbrook Roads cleared up by mid-day. Let us know where you plan to trick-or-treat tonight!

Also, check back with Patch before you head out to trick-or-treat for some Halloween safety tips. 

3. If you're interested in Chabad Chai Center's program, they are offering a free session today. Swing by their St. Paul Street location at 9:15 a.m. and check out the creative movement and social atmosphere with other moms.

4. Don your costumes and head over to Yawkey Way in Boston for the annual Trick-or-treat at Fenway Park. In addition to face-painting, magic, pumpkin decoration and, of course, candy, Red Sox alumni Frank Malzone, Ted Lepcio, Rich Gedman, and Bob Montgomery will be hanging around. They're kicking things off at Gate B at 4 p.m., and it's free. (weather permitting).

5. The Coolidge Corner Theatre's Special Screening tonight: "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" starts at 7 p.m. and runs you $7. As a vaudevillian star, Jane's, childhood career wanes, her sister, Blanche's, adult acting career is picking up. Then, an accident cripples Blanche and sends Jane into a regressive state, and the audience into a ride of black comedy, psychodrama and gothic horror.

On Twitter, @wendypierce tells us she's going to Clark Road. Can anyone top that?

What are the official Halloween trick-or-treating hours for Brookline? I cannot find that information anywhere online.

I don't believe there are "official" hours. There are some neighborhoods which are more popular than others, but I haven't been able to turn anything up either. Anyone else? Am I mistaken? I'm a little old to trick-or-treat these days myself!
