Parents make alternative plans to avoid cold and rainy trick-or-treating

Posted:

Stormy weather for Halloween may fit the spooky theme, but it doesn't bode well for trick or treating.  That's why hundreds of kids were trick-or-treating Sunday even though the Holiday is still a few days away. 

Several trunk or treating events were held Sunday around Michiana.  At Willow Creek United Methodist Church in Mishawaka event organizers said they hold the event because it's safe.  "Going door to door anymore you don't know what kind of doors you're knocking on number one, number two you fight the traffic, some roadways are not lit well.  This is done in the middle of the afternoon when it's daylight," said Ruth Cenova-Wotring.

And parents appreciate the environment.  Ashley Timm said, "one it's daylight, two you can see where everybody's kids are at."

But there's another big reason they came out to trunk or treat.  "It's sunny," said Timm.  And current forecasts are calling for rain possibly even thunderstorms on Halloween.  Timm said, "It gets kinda cold on Halloween night so it was probably a good time to take advantage of the warm weather."

Because trick-or-treating in the cold takes some of the fun out of it.  "So many years when I took my kids trick or treating there was snow on the ground and you can't see the costumes cause you have to bundle them up," said Ruth Cenova-Wotring.  And Kaila Glover said cold makes her kids cranky and, "I don't want them to get sick."

It seems like a lot of people were thinking the same thing.  Cenova-Wotring said, "It is the most we've ever seen.  I started the day with 120 treat bags in my basket.  I went through those probably within the first 30 minutes...It's been a huge turnout.  I would say upwards of 250 kids."

If you want to get some trick or treating in before the rainy weather strikes on Halloween there is another trunk or treating event happening Monday night at the South Bend Police Department.  All the information is here.
