City of Toledo not moving Halloween because of weather
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 20:33:37 GMT —
Update: During a television appearance on Wednesday evening, Toledo Mayor Mike Bell announced that a final decision on trick-or-treat in the Glass City would be made by Noon on Thursday.
There are a lot of communities throughout northwest Ohio that are rescheduling Halloween in the wake of Thursday's expected bad weather. But, there's also communities that are not budging.
Toledo is one of 42 cities and towns throughout our area not moving Halloween.
As a result some people will take advantage of trunk or treating held at area schools. Parents that still plan on trick or treating Thursday, better plan to bring at least an umbrella.
WNWO talked with Mayor Mike Bell's communication director over the phone who said Halloween events were held rain or shine, and that trick or treating events in the past were never cancelled because of bad weather.
This Halloween is a few days before election day. Some comments from WNWO's Facebook fans say it's not a smart move by Toledo's mayor. However, there are comments and people who say if parents don't have to take their kids out in bad weather and they can stay home and trick or treat.
On the City of Toledo's Facebook page, it advises parents to use their best judgment about taking their kids out to trick or treat.
