Weather Slows Down Halloween In Some Communities

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The threat of severe weather kept many trick-or-treaters off the streets Halloween night, but not everyone.

In the Richland Creek area of Nashville, homeowners normally see nearly 10,000 children going door to door.

They did not see that size of a crowd Thursday night, but there were a handful people on the streets, despite the forecast.

"It's been up in the air and we just decided to just pull it together and say, you know, it's Halloween, let's just get out there and have some fun," said parent Paul Loggins.

Along Central Avenue, Annemarie Thompson, and her daughter Mia, patiently waited for ghouls and goblins to arrive at their house. It was a much different situation than in years past.

"Normally the sidewalks would be filled with children, laughing, screaming, trick-or-treating in their costumes," Thompson said.

Richland Park's homeowners decided to officially hold Halloween on Friday, but gave everyone the option of handing out candy on Thursday.  Thompson said she felt it was something she had to do.

"It's kind of all trick if you come to a neighborhood expecting a busy trick-or-treat Halloween, and you don't get anything," she said.

Normally Thompson will hand out 750 pieces of candy on Halloween night. She hopes to give away what she has leftover on Friday night.
