Some cities reschedule trick or treat due to threat of storms

Trick or treat events in Hopkinsville and Elkton were moved to Tuesday due to storm threats on Halloween. 

Hopkinsville hosted their Halloween festivities on Main Street from 3:30 to 5:30p.m. and Elkton hosted their trick or treat even from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

City officials encouraged neighborhoods to do the same. 

The superintendent of the Park and Recreation department in Hopkinsville feels he made the right decision. 

“It was the smart call, and we’ve had so many calls and so many emails, folks saying thank you for changing it and we appreciate the safety concern that you had," Tab Brockman said. 

Brockman said most families were understanding.

Wednesday morning, Fort Campbell announced that its trick-or-treating had been changed to Thursday.
