MORGANTOWN, Ind. – Some Indiana communities are changing the day children will go trick-or-treating due to anticipated bad weather on Halloween.

The Town of Morgantown became the latest to make the switch, announcing on their Facebook page Tuesday morning that out of concern for the “safety of the children” it would hold trick-or-treating from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday evening.

The City of North Vernon made the announcement on their Facebook page Monday morning. City officials said due to the fact that there is a 100% chance of rain and heavy rainfall may cause problems, they decided to push it back to Friday. The hours remain unchanged. Children may trick-or-treat from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The Town of Hope is also moving its trick-or-treating to Friday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., according to police.
