Storms Hinder Halloween

Trick-or-treat events in Hopkinsville and Elkton have been moved as a result of the storm threats over the Halloween period.

City officials have encouraged other neighborhoods to do that same, taking the threat levels of the storms seriously. The superintendent of the Park and Recreation department in Hopkinsville feels that the right decision has been made. Tab Brockman has said: “It was the smart call, and we have had so many calls and so many email, folks saying thank you for changing it and we appreciate the safety concern that you had.”

Brockman has stated that most of the families were understanding of the decision that was made.

On Halloween, scattered severe thunderstorms are possible from Wednesday afternoon and all through the night.

The cities of Ridgeland and Madison will observe Halloween on Wednesday, but a Madison official has made it clear stating that the neighborhood associations can choose to go trick-or-treating on any night they choose.

Trick-or-treating will also be held on Wednesday in Clinton. The City of Clinton is not responsible for rescheduling holiday observances, the city’s website says: “It is the discretion of a neighborhood and/or organization whether they will off trick-or-treating on another day.”
